Testimony

Physicians can influence the political process by providing written or oral testimony on specific legislation for committee hearings.

We provide opportunities for physicians to get involved in local, state, and federal public policy issues. Physicians are the best messengers to provide medically accurate information on reproductive health issues to lawmakers and the public. With Physicians for Reproductive Health, your voice can be heard!

Testimony of Physicians’ Jodi Magee Before the Senate Judiciary Committee, March 15, 2016

“In recent years, those who would limit the rights of women to safely access a legal medical procedure have successfully passed hundreds of restrictions on abortion; some under the guise of protecting women, but all designed in reality to limit women’s access to safe and legal services. These laws try to shame, pressure, and punish a woman who has decided to have an abortion. The doctors in our organization believe that women deserve better.”
