Despite the increase in state-level abortion restrictions, the number of obstetrics and gynecology residency programs offering abortion education and training has increased in politically restrictive environments. This survey-based study aims to capture how resident perceptions of those abortion restrictions impact satisfaction with education and training and their intent to provide abortion care following residency.
