  • NPWH Statement on Abortion Bans

    NPWH Statement on Abortion Bans
    NPWH is alarmed that lawmakers are working to pass new laws banning and restricting abortion access — imposing professional, civil, and criminal penalties on clinicians who provide safe, high-quality abortion care to their patients. We are also troubled and paying close attention to new discussions and political debates regarding contraception and the autonomy of women's bodies.

    As these disturbing events continue to unfold, NPWH re-asserts our mission statement, which values “protecting and promoting a woman’s right to make her own choices regarding her health within the context of her personal, religious, cultural, and family beliefs.”

    Nurse practitioners understand that it is crucial to have the ability to provide women with compassionate, individualized healthcare built on sound science and evidence-based practice. We are committed to offering safe choices and equal access to all women.
