Abortion access

March 13, 1998

AN EDITORIAL yesterday concerning a proposed partnership between the Greater Baltimore Medical Center and St. Joseph Medical Center stated that GBMC is the only community-based hospital in the Baltimore area that will perform an elective abortion. In fact, several other community hospitals, including Sinai, Union Memorial and Maryland General, also offer the procedure early in pregnancy, in addition to the city's academic medical centers, Johns Hopkins and the University of Maryland.

While a partnership with St. Joseph would mean that GBMC would no longer perform elective abortions, hospital officials assure The Sun that a full range of contraceptive and fertility treatments would be unaffected by any such agreement.
