NPWH Statement on SCOTUS Texas SB 8 Ruling
NPWH issued the following statement in response to the Supreme Court's decision to allow Texas abortion providers to pursue challenges to Texas SB 8 while the law remains in effect.
"Texas Senate Bill 8 interferes with the provision of, and access to, safe and comprehensive healthcare. As the professional association for Women's Health Nurse Practitioners, we promote research and evidence-based clinical guidance that supports the health and wellbeing of patients. The medical community has long been in agreement: that includes abortion care.
We continue to work towards the mission of our organization, which includes protecting and promoting a woman's right to make her own choices regarding her health an well-being within the context of her lived experience and her personal, religious, cultural, and family beliefs."
