Abstract

Women and families benefit from access to the full spectrum of reproductive care, including family-planning services. We commend our family-planning colleagues on their tireless dedication to preserve the rights of women through advocacy. While several of our perinatology peers have also set an example by dedication to these issues, advocacy for patient access to reproductive care options has not been a focus of the larger perinatology community. The time has come for individual perinatologists, as well as the overall perinatology community, to join them and do the work needed to preserve access to safe care, including contraception and abortion services. In this call to action, we detail several ways that individuals and the community can become more involved in working for reproductive rights.
