On why placements at an anti-choice crisis pregnancy centre are dangerous, our Director of Health Promotion, Frédérique Chabot, explains in the article:
“Chabot said it was concerning that future doctors and health-care providers ‘are not being taught how to provide full spectrum reproductive health care.’
‘They’re being taught anti-choice rhetoric and counselling of patients that reinforce stigma around abortion,’ Chabot said.
Chabot added these placements have an impact on students during their formative years as health-care providers.
‘Being in those spaces, steeped in that kind of language, in that kind of rhetoric, has to be taken seriously,’ Chabot said.
