"A 13 y/o F comes in to get an abortion, where there is no legal restriction, or parental notification or permission required. Do you perform the abortion. Second part: it doesn't matter wether you perform the abortion or not, as she commits suicide and leave a note telling her father that you either performed an abortion or refused to, in either case causing her to commit suicide. He comes to see you with the letter. What do you tell him?" Report Response

"Read the posts of other SDN people! Thanks!" Report Response

"Nice facility. Nice people. Decent on-campus housing/prices - coming from a guy living in New England." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The cost. The heat - coming from a guy living in New England." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Nice, a bit stressful, but that's to be expected. I have a background in philosophy and have extensive medical experience, so perhaps the mind-bending ethical questions where reserved for those who they wanted to shake a little. Other people walked out with the standard 'three people to dinner' and 'appliance' questions, and I get abortions, suicides, and multi-casualty incidents with people triaged to priority 0 and still talking. Oy." Report Response
