Washington State Association of Abortion Providers is Reactivated

According to the Abortion Access Project (AAP) the Washington State Association of Abortion Providers (WSAAP) is once again active in Washington state.

Founded by the Feminist Women's Health Center in 1987, the WSAAP has been dormant for over a decade. The renewed group of about 40 plus clinicians and advocates met in April of 2007 and featured special guest Dr. Sarah Prager, assistant professor of the OB/GYN at the University of Washington/Harborview Medical Center and recent Family Planning Fellow at UCSF. She was on hand to discuss her new position as the Ryan Residency training program director as well as offer a literature review on the use of misoprostol.

The lack of abortionists is hitting the state hard. The recent arrest, and revoked licenses of several abortionists and closure of clinics has the abortion industry worried.

Chemical abortion (misoprostol) is therefore being pushed and non-physician abortionists are being trained. They call it improving access. We call it bad for women's health.
