Abortion March Picture

We strongly oppose the Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade. We are deeply saddened by the anticipated impact of this decision on women’s health, particularly for the most vulnerable patients. Abortion is an essential healthcare service. The Supreme Court decision today is detrimental to the health of the pregnant people we serve at Delfina. Pregnant patients deserve better.

We believe in every person’s right to decide whether and when to have children. To each of our pregnant users: You deserve to make informed decisions with your care teams.

To our healthcare provider partners: we will support you in advocating for your patients’ lives and in providing the highest quality of care to your patients, including abortion services. We support the ACOG position that abortion is an essential healthcare service that should be available to all patients and provided by medically qualified practitioners in safe environments. We also believe in data, which historically indicates that restrictions on abortion services correlate with increases in maternal morbidity and mortality.

While this ruling creates new challenges for providers and patients, we are deeply motivated to support those fighting for the health of pregnant patients in the United States and around the world. We stand with you.
