Our Mission

Medical Students for Choice (MSFC) aligns itself with the goals and mission of the international, non-profit organization of the same name. The mission and values statements of the international organization appears directly below:

 “Creating Tomorrow’s Abortion Providers and Pro-Choice Physicians”

Medical Students for Choice “believe that all people should have access to health services that allow them to lead safe, healthy lives including all aspects of sexual and reproductive health consistent with their own personal and cultural values.”

MSFC works at multiple levels, providing appropriate clinical care, participating in reproductive health advocacy and education, and advancing public policy awareness. The group’s fundamental goal is to ensure and protect every person’s right to have access to – and utilize, if they so choose – any and all available reproductive health services and family planning options.
