Abstract

Barriers to women's reproductive health care access, particularly for termination of pregnancy, are increasing at the local, regional, and national levels through numerous institutional, legislative, and regulatory restrictions. Lack of access to reproductive health care has negative consequences for women's health. Twelve women's health care organizations affirm their support for access to comprehensive reproductive health care, including abortion.
