I am new to allnurses.com and this is my first post, so hopefully it's in the right forum and no one else has posted about this.
I am a pre-nursing student. I have narrowed down my choices to three specialties:
Midwifery, Pediatric nurse, and a nurse who works with people with cancer (preferably children, not sure what this would be called)
However, it popped into my head that being a midwife might mean doing abortions too. I am pro-life so this is really concerning.
My question is, who performs abortions? Is it only surgeons or doctors? Are midwives the ones who perform it? If so, is there a way to opt out of it? Would love to hear from any midwives out there!
