Reproductive Rights Are Human Rights
NASW remains resolute in our commitment to protect reproductive rights and freedoms. NASW affirms all individuals have a right to bodily autonomy, that abortion is health care, and that all individuals have the right to freedom of choice in accessing essential health care services most especially their reproductive health.
The U.S. Supreme Court on June 24, 2022, revoked Roe v. Wade, and various states have enacted, or are poised to enact, laws to restrict access to abortion and other reproductive health care.
NASW President Angelo McClain and President Mildred "Mit" Joyner said:
NASW is not surprised but still outraged by the U.S. Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. This association believes everyone should have the right to make their own decisions when it comes to their reproductive health. We are not going back. NASW will continue to mobilize on a state, federal and court level to do what is necessary to protect reproductive rights.
