CAPC Statement on the Overturning of Roe v. Wade
One of the most significant health care issues of our time, the overturning of Roe v. Wade limits access to maternal health care and exacerbates health disparities for millions of people–including the people with serious illness we serve in palliative care.
Restrictive state laws can now interfere in the patient-physician relationship and override important medical decisions that should be made by patients in consultation with their clinicians. Historically and economically marginalized and disadvantaged populations will have even more limited access to our health care system.
Dedicated to increasing access to quality health care, CAPC stands in support for people to receive the patient-centered, evidence-based health care they need. Nothing less is acceptable.
