SHARE YOUR KNOWLEDGE
If you’re a healthcare professional (provider, trainee, public health professional, hospital administrator, etc.), we want to hear from you.
The best way to make clear for everyone what’s truly at stake here—why abortion has to remain an option for our patients—is to share the stories that we know, but that might not be obvious to those outside of the healthcare profession.
REAL STORIES ABOUT REAL PATIENTS
Pregnant people seek abortions for many reasons, from life-threatening complications, to socioeconomic barriers, to providing for another child in their already struggling family, to a desire to remain in school as they build their own futures. Each patient’s life is unique, and the care provided to them must be adjusted to align with their needs, wants, and life circumstances–this is true not just of abortion care, but of medical care in every clinical specialty.
That’s why we are sharing stories about the real impact that the availability of abortion has on the pregnant people who we’ve treated—so that state legislators and everyone else knows what’s really at stake.
WHY WE’RE HERE
BECAUSE OUR PATIENTS’ RIGHTS MATTER
Georgia Healthcare Professionals for Reproductive Justice (GRJ) is the largest group of Georgia healthcare professionals—doctors, nurses, medical students, public health workers, PAs, PTs, hospital administrators, and more—committed to reproductive justice.
GRJ members share one common goal: to promote and provide safe, ethical, and evidence-based medical care. Abortion is a part of comprehensive, evidence-based healthcare, and is both a medical necessity and a right for our patients.
We strongly oppose any effort that seeks to hinder the care of women and all pregnant people, and interfere in the essential patient-provider relationship. GRJ seeks to advocate on behalf of our patients to ensure abortion remains safe and accessible, without interference from parties outside of healthcare.
