Abortion care is the only area of medicine where the federal government puts politics and ideology before the doctor-patient relationship, with the intent to criminalize doctors and manipulate patients’ health care decisions. As physicians, we use our medical expertise and experience caring for our patients to advocate for their right to access safe, affordable, high-quality abortion care in their communities.
We are uniquely positioned to bring evidence and clarity to the most politicized area of medical practice. We believe that speaking about abortion helps remove the stigma that anti-choice lawmakers and organizations have attached to it. Through our practice we have seen that abortion access strengthens our families and communities.
We are proud to provide comprehensive reproductive health care to our patients and help ensure that everyone has the choice to determine their futures, including if and how to become a parent.
We help defend abortion access.
Anti-choice politicians use deceitful tactics to ban safe methods of abortion care, or prohibit abortions sought for a particular reason, or after a certain point in pregnancy. These bans police the relationship between patients and providers, and prevent medical professionals from providing their patients with individualized care. They serve no medical purpose, and federal courts have deemed many of them unconstitutional. We advocate against abortion bans by educating legislators on the harms they create for patients.
Bills that attempt to restrict abortions are based on bad science, endangering our patients and putting obstacles in their path to getting the care that they need. We use medical evidence to fight false claims like those saying abortion causes cancer or that abortions can be reversed.
We believe that health insurance should cover all reproductive health care needs, including access to safe abortion care. A patient's source of insurance should not determine whether or not they can get the care they need. We work to end the Hyde Amendment and other harmful restrictions that prohibit our patients from using their insurance, including public insurance, to access abortion care.
