Our Beginnings

Physicians for Reproductive Health was founded in 1992 by a small committee of concerned physicians in New York City, where we opened our first national office in 1995. Since then, our presence has spread from coast to coast enabling us to conduct our recruiting, organizing, advocacy, and educational activities at the grassroots level.

Breaking the Silence

My decision to quickly end my pregnancy was to protect my health and to allow me to be a mother for my children. I am so grateful to the doctors and nurses who helped me maintain my health.
