Abortion is the removal or expulsion of an embryo or fetus from a pregnant pregnancy. A miscarriage, also known as a “spontaneous abortion,” is a spontaneous abortion that happens in about 30 percent to 40 percent of pregnancies.
We believe that individuals are capable of making informed decisions about their health care, and they deserve to do so in an atmosphere of dignity and respect and as active participants in their care.
Our health care practices are not directed by corporate mandates, but by the needs of our communities. Our independence allows us to be accessible and responsive to our communities and enables us to take action on emerging and immediate community needs.
We provide support and services to vulnerable and historically marginalized communities. We are not responsible to stock holders, but to our community, our Board of Directors, and our stakeholders.
We are proud partners of the broader reproductive justice movement that advocates for a woman’s right to determine whether and when to have children, to become a parent, to parent with dignity, to have a healthy safe pregnancy, and to have healthy safe families and relationships.
We are stronger together. We work in collaboration to inform public policy, challenge unjust legislation, educate and influence the work of our allies, and to raise and amplify the voices and experiences of the individuals we serve.
