For the last decade the right has chipped away at abortion access by making it more expensive, closing clinics, increasing waiting periods and decreasing gestational limits. But for 2019 Arizona abortion opponents are literally enacting a “death by a thousand paper cuts” agenda against legal abortion through their new paperwork and reporting requirements for doctors performing abortions. None of them are medically necessary, not a single question will provide any benefit to public health, and each one will dramatically raise the amount of resources a clinic uses per patient.
About Us – Our Physicians
Dr. Gabrielle Goodrick
Dr. Gabrielle Goodrick began her training to perform abortions during medical school at a local women’s health clinic in Vermont in the early 1990’s. This experience, along with a strong interest in women’s health and reproductive choice, motivated her to pursue family medicine, a medical specialty that focuses on the whole family.
As a Family Physician with over 25+ years’ experience caring for families and women in need of abortion care, Dr. Gabrielle Goodrick is there for her patients through all of life’s experiences, including a crisis pregnancy. She will support not only the woman but her family as well. It is not uncommon for Dr. Gabrielle Goodrick to continue to care for a woman after she has had a pregnancy termination in the office. There is a TRUST and UNDERSTANDING that develops during each office visit.
Dr. Gabrielle Goodrick earned her medical degree from University of Vermont in Burlington, Vermont. She trained in Family Medicine at Phoenix Baptist Hospital and worked at Planned Parenthood for 5 years before opening her own private office. She is a member of the National Abortion Federation and Abortion Care Network. She is a Faculty Physician at University of Arizona, Department of College of Medicine-Phoenix and Adjunct Faculty at Touro University Nevada, College of Osteopathic Medicine.
Dr. Kristin Livingston
Dr. Kristin Livingston was raised in Northern California and attended college at the University of California, San Diego where she received a BS in Biology with a Minor in Health Care: Social Issues. Although always raised Pro-Choice by her divorced mother, Kristin did not have her first exposure to abortion care until college, when she spent a summer working as a medical assistant in a community abortion clinic in Redding, California.
Dr. Livingston then attended medical school at Drexel University College of Medicine in Philadelphia where she was the chair of the school’s chapter of Medical Students for Choice and was able to attend all four National Conferences.
Kristin later returned to California for OB/GYN Residency at Kaiser Los Angeles Medical Center, and a special elective at University of California, San Francisco, where she was privileged enough to receive training in all aspects of abortion care.
Dr. Livingston moved to Phoenix in 2014 and is honored to be one of the few providers of second trimester abortions in the state. Kristin mainly works as a General OB/GYN in the West Valley and delivers babies at Banner Thunderbird Medical Center. She enjoys teaching medical students and residents while providing safe, affordable, and legal abortion care.
