Joint Statement on Abortion Access During the COVID-19 Outbreak

We joined the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), the American Board of Obstetrics & Gynecology (ABOG), the American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists (AAGL), the American Gynecological and Obstetrical Society (AGOS), the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM), the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine (SMFM), and the Society for Academic Specialists in General Obstetrics and Gynecology (SASGOG) in issuing a recommendation that abortion care not be delayed during the COVID-19 pandemic. We hope this new Joint Statement on Abortion Access During the COVID-19 Outbreak will build on the foundation of the previously issued Joint Statement on Elective Surgeries and will support the work of clinicians providing abortion services in hospital systems or ambulatory surgical facilities.
