SMFM Position Statement: Access to abortion care

Publications & Guidelines, SMFM Statement,

The Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine supports the right of all individuals to access the full spectrum of reproductive health services, including abortion care. Reproductive health decisions are best made by each individual with guidance and support from their healthcare providers. The Society opposes legislation and policies that limit access to abortion care or criminalize abortion care and self-managed abortion. In addition, the Society opposes policies that compromise the patient-healthcare provider relationship by limiting a healthcare provider’s ability to counsel patients and provide evidence-based, medically appropriate treatment.
