Abortion is compassionate care.

Abortion providers at Planned Parenthood work on the frontlines of sexual and reproductive health care in their communities, providing nonjudgemental and compassionate abortion care to all people.
 

In their words.

Our clinicians share why access to abortion is so important — and what being an abortion provider means to them.

Amauche
DNP, APRN, WHNP-BC

"Abortion access is important because abortion is health care, and access to health care is a right."

Amina
PA-C

"Being an abortion provider is incredibly empowering. I feel a strong sense of responsibility to ensure that abortion is accessible and safe for the people in our communities and I am proud to continue this important work every day."

Angela
PA-C

"There always have and always will be abortions — they should be accessible to everyone. It's a privilege to be there for anyone who makes this choice."

Ashley
CNM, WHNP

"Having control over your body is a right, not a privilege. Abortion care is political, but it's also very personal. It's an honor to serve people during their most personal moments. Providing this service and protecting a person's freedom is one of the things I am most proud of, not just in my career, but in my life."

Colleen
APRN

"Simply put: Abortion care is health care. Like all aspects of health care, abortion should be accessible without political interference and delivered with respect."

Gannon
CNM

"Being an abortion provider means I am able to provide compassionate care during difficult and not so difficult times and help patients to live the lives they desire. I can provide safe, legal, compassionate care to all."

Jennifer
CNM

"Access to full reproductive health care and education is critical in allowing each person to realize their individual life goals. I love this work and am proud to provide abortion."

Kate
DNP, APRN, AGPCNP-BC

"Abortion access is essential. Every person should have the autonomy to decide for themselves if and when to have a child."

Sarah
FNP-BC

"Reproductive choice is a fundamental right that should be available to everyone. Being an abortion provider means supporting people to make their own choice. It means truly living the calling of being a health care provider."

Sarah
PA-C

"It means providing help, compassion and dignity in a time of real need. Abortion services are safe and should continue to available and accessible — period. Care no matter what, no matter where!"
