Abortion providers are compassionate, skilled people who believe in the health, well-being, and dignity of every patient. They trust and care for patients every day. As March 10 marks National Day of Appreciation for Abortion Providers, Planned Parenthood Hudson Peconic (PPHP) thanks the staff who work to keep its patients healthy and ensure they have access to the full range of reproductive health care options, including safe and legal abortion.
PPHP is committed to providing our patients with high-quality, confidential, and compassionate care. The work of our sensitive and highly skilled health center staff makes this possible and ensures the communities we serve get the best care possible, every day, no matter what. The decision to have a child, have an abortion, or choose adoption is personal, and no one should have to justify that decision.
Everyone should have accurate information about all of their pregnancy options. Information should support the patient, help them make a decision, and enable them to take care of their health and well-being. It should not be provided with the intent of coercing, shaming, or judging their decision. PPHP is proud to provide safe, legal abortion services. Our staff trusts patients to make their own fully informed reproductive health care decisions.
Our top priority is the safety and well-being of our patients and staff. Patient care means making sure every patient has safe, compassionate, respectful care, and that is exactly what Planned Parenthood focuses on every day.
Health care providers must be able to evaluate each individual patient’s care, without political interference, to determine the best options for their health and well-being, and help them make their own personal medical decisions. That’s why it’s important abortion remains safe and legal. The unfortunate reality is that too many women, transgender men, and nonbinary people in the U.S. face barriers to sexual and reproductive health care, including safe, legal abortion. At PPHP, everyone, no matter where you live or how much money you make or who provides your health insurance, deserves access to health care without barriers or political roadblocks. Every person’s circumstance is different and every pregnancy is unique. These decisions are between people, their families, and their health care providers, and should not be subjected to interference by politicians.
