The Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade is deeply distressing; the decision represents a dangerous restriction on human rights and patient-provider decision making and will further exacerbate health inequities by making safe, legal reproductive care unavailable to many Americans. ACHA firmly believes that all individuals should have the right to make decisions about their bodies and should have the right to make these decisions in consultation with their health care providers in a way that supports their needs.
