Our Mission and Values
We believe that all people should have access to health services that allow them to lead safe, healthy lives including all aspects of sexual and reproductive health consistent with their own personal and cultural values. Our work is guided by the following values:
- All reproductive health choices should be freely accessible to all people.
- People are the experts on their own bodies and experiences.
- All people have the right to make their own decisions regarding sexuality, health, and whether and when to have children.
- Sexual health decisions such as abortion affect people of all identities.
- All social justice movements intersect and therefore achieving our mission requires working collaboratively to overcome all forms of oppression.
- All people are entitled to empathy and compassionate medical care without judgment.
- Providing abortion care is a deeply moral decision. Abortion and contraception are vital aspects of medical care that should be embraced as standard practice and as fundamental to medical education.
