This week and next, PRCH is training doctors and medical students in the San Francisco area on the potential impact of Proposition 4 -- the Family Notification Act of 2008 -- for physicians and their adolescent patients. Prop. 4 is a dangerous attempt to take confidentiality away from teens and restrict their access to necessary medical treatment.

At the ARHP conference last week, PRCH member Justin Diedrich, MD, won the Preserving Core Values in Science Award along with Gail Sorrough, MLIS, and Gloria Won, MLIS, for exposing the blocking of “abortion” as a search term in the federally funded POPLINE database. Congratulations!

“Why do I provide [abortions]? ... Because nothing gives me greater satisfaction than having a woman walk scared and sad into my office, and watching her leave unburdened and relieved.”
