Medical care shaped through professionals, social movement groups, and foundations

The NYT has an extensive article that discusses how the provision of abortion and family planning services have changed in the medical field. The article outlines how pro-life and pro-choice activist groups, as well as medical professionals and donors/foundations, have shaped the availability of medical care and family planning to women and underserved populations, such as residents of rural areas.

Those who want more insight into how participation in groups can cultivate and intensify beliefs should read Ziad Munson‘s book, The Making of Pro-Life Activists: How Social Movement Mobilization Works (UChicago Press).
