  1. Clinicians who provide abortions : the thinning ranks.

    Article - En anglais

    Access to abortion services in the United States has become increasingly limited because of a decrease in rural hospital providers and a growing shortage of clinicians willing to offer this service.

    As of 1988, 83% of United States counties had no identified provider.

    The deficit in numbers of clinicians stems from the current imbalance between incentives and disincentives.

    The single most powerful incentive appears to be altruism.

    On the other hand, disincentives include poor pay, frequent harassment, low prestige, suboptimal working conditions, and tedium.
