Medical Professionals Against Government Intrusion into the Practice of Medicine

Open Letter from Over 1,200 North Carolina Health Care Professionals to Protect Abortion Access

As North Carolina health care professionals deeply committed to patients' safety and well-being, we adamantly oppose any new abortion restrictions. 

North Carolinians should have the ability to make personal health care decisions with the assistance of their doctors and healthcare team – without the intrusion of politicians. Restrictions on abortion put the government in charge of deciding which healthcare options are available to patients and set a dangerous precedent that violates the sacred patient-clinician relationship. 

The harmful consequences of abortion bans extend beyond abortion care.  Some patients in other states are receiving substandard care for miscarriages, ectopic pregnancies, and even cancer treatment because of uncertainty created by restrictive laws. Providers are being forced to seek legal advice before being able to care for the patient in need before them. 

We cannot let any more dangerous, medically unnecessary restrictions on abortion care become law in North Carolina. These laws put the health and wellbeing of patients and their families at risk. You trust us when you come into our clinics and our hospitals for your medical needs. We ask for your trust now. Keep the government out of exam rooms.

We stand united in support of North Carolinians to make their own medical decisions including abortion care, and we affirm the position of all national societies, including the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Academy of Family Physicians, the American Medical Association, and the American College of Nurse-Midwives.
