You're correct, I misspoke. I should have said that MOST abortions are NOT done by surgeons.<quoted text>
Read the last line, dumbbell. See the words "surgeoen performing the procedure"?
While surgeons CAN do these procedures, they generally do NOT. OB/GYN's USUALLY do thse surgery's since they are the one's seeing the patients.
"Physicians who choose to specialize in abortion care take on extra education and training requirements. Usually, doctors who perform abortion are gynecologists (specialists in female reproductive health), but they may also be family practice doctors or other specialists who have learned abortion techniques. Doctors who perform abortions also know how to use the same techniques to perform a D&C and to treat ectopic (tubal) pregnancies. In four states, Advanced Practice Clinicians are authorized to provide surgical abortion or provide the abortion pill. These may be Physician’s Assistants, Nurse Practitioners, or Certified Nurse Midwives who are specially trained. Their safety record has been proven to be the same as physicians."
