Paula Patient doesn’t want her violent boyfriend to know she’s getting an abortion, so she
asks Dr. Bob to send all communications to her to a post office box and to phone her only
at work. What should Dr. Bob do, and what is the legal basis for your advice? If she tells
Dr. Bob that not doing this will endanger her, would your answer be different?
Have you read your lessons? I'm surprised you even have to think about this.
