Our Commitment to and Advocacy for Comprehensive Reproductive Healthcare

The Medical College of Wisconsin Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology has long been a distinguished leader and innovator in the education and development of the next generation of reproductive healthcare professionals. Our clinicians provide comprehensive, evidence-based care of the highest quality, improving the health of the communities that are served. A critical aspect within the specialty of obstetrics and gynecology includes both access to contraception and safe and legal pregnancy termination.

Restricting access to reproductive care disproportionately affects our most vulnerable patients, erodes the trust and sanctity of the patient-physician relationship, and criminalizes physicians – all of which negatively impact the health of our community. Our Department stands with the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology and other leading Medical and Healthcare organizations who oppose a ban on abortions. We add our voice to those advocating for access to comprehensive reproductive healthcare for all our patients.
