I know that both Munger and Buffett are both pro-choice but I cannot imagine Munger toasting a OB/GYN for performing thousands of abortions. If Munger did in fact say that, my opinion of his character would be very different, ...

I agree with you that it is unlikely that Munger was referring to abortions, if he said this at all. Although someone has to do the abortions, if you are pro-choice, it is hardly something that you would choose to celebrate, even if you were as contrarian a person as Mr Munger.

But he could also have been referring to contraception, don't you think? Gynecologists do a fair bit of prescribing contraception, and tying tubes, and so forth, so that would be a more benign interpretation.

Regards, DTM
