Every time I have a prenatal appointment, I get a call from my doctor's office the day before reminding me of the event. It's good -- often I schedule the appointment when I leave the previous appointment, and it helps me keep track of my plans and remember exactly what day I picked or office I go to this time.
Do I consider it an "opportunistic scheme" for my doctor to be sure he gets more billable hours? Of course not.
Now, switch in abortion, and it's truly evil. Or so says anti-choice activists, concerned that text message reminders of an appointments related to abortion care are attempts to coerce the woman into the procedure.
