Nurses: All deserve reproductive health care

Published by THE STAND on 5/12/22 (Source)

The following joint statement was released Wednesday by the Washington State Nurses Association and the Oregon Nurses Association:

The Oregon Nurses Association (ONA) and Washington State Nurses Association (WSNA) stand firm in our resolve that all people deserve access to health care services, when and where they need it, without financial hardship. That care includes access to a full range of essential health services, from health promotion and prevention, treatment, rehabilitation, information to make informed decisions, abortion, reproductive and sexual health options, palliative care and end of life care, among others.

We are deeply concerned about the leaked draft opinion from the Supreme Court regarding access to abortion — a draft opinion that appears likely to overturn Roe v. Wade.
