I am 63 years old, an OB/GYN specialist and public health professor, who has been an abortionist (clinical provider) and abortion activist for four decades, and has written several policy papers on abortion and sexuality and contraception - practice and policies - in Norway. I have also worked globally, and addressed unsafe abortions in West-Africa, as a scientist/researcher. I have mostly conducted research on women's reproductive health world wide.
