Abortion became legal in America 42 years ago. And since then, the voices for and against the procedure have been strong and usually certain.

But there’s one group routinely missing from the debate: medical professionals who perform abortions — or decide not to.

Now, some OB-GYN residents from Brown University's medical school are lending their voices to the conversation about abortion. They've written essays featured in the journal Obstetrics and Gynecology. One of their teachers, Janet Singer, the lead author of the article, helped start a support group for Brown residents after one particularly anguished conversation.
