24 years ago when I was expecting my son my first Doctor visit was in August, Andrew was born in November. Because I was a single Mom to Be who had just gotten divorced the Doctor I saw felt it was necessary to 'educate' me on my options. Mind you I was at a facility that did not offer abortions and or advocate them. Had I been the person then that I am now I would have reported that Doctor to someone there then. Because I have since found out he was fired because of statements like that he made to patients. If we just sit and do nothing we might as well give up....I pray, I earnestly pray that people wake up. Do you really want a Doctor telling your daughter what her options are even if she never asked to have them explained?
Sadly, physicians have been sued for "wrongful birth" for not providing abortion as an option when it was determined an unborn child had some serious medical condition (e.g., Down's syndrome).
Physicians, especially those who work for corporate entities such as HMOs or who are treating patients in a hospital, have patient care guidelines they are expected to follow (and document that they have been completed in the patient's medical record). The guidelines include things such as when a pregnancy test must be performed, the sexual activity screening questions someone mentioned earlier, etc. Some of these are CYA measures that come about because of lawsuits such as those I mentioned above; some are standards of practice determined by groups such as the American College of Physicians, the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, etc. -- some of which are the result more of social pressure than sound medicine. If the physicians don't document having done these things and the chart is audited, they will get dinged for it. (As used here, 'physician' includes mid-level clinicians (nurse practitioners and physician assistants.))
