Pelvic Exams Consent

Pelvic Exams Consent

In this April 29, 2019, photo, Dr. Laura Baecher-Lind, director of women's care at Tufts Medical Center, poses for a photo in an exam room at the medical center in Boston. Lawmakers in several states say they were alarmed to learn it’s still possible for medical students to do pelvic exams on anesthetized women without explicit consent, especially given evolving cultural attitudes in the #MeToo era. Doctors discuss consent forms with gynecology patients, inform them that students may participate in pelvic exams and ask for consent, said Baecher-Lind. (AP Photo/Steven Senne)
