TORONTO, Jan 29 (LSN)—Pro-abortion groups announced yesterday the creation of a new fund fund to encourage more medical schools to teach abortion procedures.  Abortion advocates are blaming anti-abortion violence for the decline of doctors willing to do abortions and the unwillingness of medical students to undergo abortion training. Campaign Life Coalition insists that the real reason for this trend is the dramatic advances in fetology and ultrasound technology in recent years. Medical students and practicioners are now more aware than ever that abortion is indeed the taking of human life and therefore something to be avoided.  Half of Canada's medical schools now refuse to teach the procedure, mostly due to lack of interest on the part of the students. Last October, abortionist Garson Romalis, a hero of the pro-abortion movement since being shot in the leg in 1994, spoke to University of British Columbia medical students looking to recruit more abortionists.  Romalis told reporters, “We can predict that, in the future, there’s going to be a shortage of people who are prepared to provide abortion services. So we want to educate the younger people, who are coming through the medical system, to the importance of abortion … and let them know there are a lot of good things associated with performing abortion services.’’  Romalis told his listeners that, ‘‘Abortion has always been viewed as a kind of a subterranean thing. [Children] don’t walk around saying, ‘My father is an abortionist.’ ‘’ In addition, he said, ‘‘it’s boring, it’s repetitious, it’s not particularly technically or intellectually demanding and it’s not very well paid.’‘
