Every individual has a fundamental right to control their own medical decisions. When it comes to reproductive health care, there should be no difference in that standard. A woman facing an unintended pregnancy should have access to all the options available to her – adoption, parenting and abortion.

Regardless of your views on abortion, one thing we can agree on is that the best person to make this personal, private decision is a woman in consultation with her family and her doctor.

We must respect that woman’s decision, and help ensure that access to needed health care is available and affordable.
