MHA Statement on Reproductive Protections in Massachusetts

From Emily Dulong, Vice President, Government Advocacy & Public Policy

“We applaud state leaders for acting swiftly to protect our providers as they prepare for a potential increase in out-of-state patients seeking access to essential reproductive, abortion, and gender-affirming care in the commonwealth. MHA and our members have no doubt that Massachusetts will continue to be a beacon for safe, accessible health services for any patient who needs them. These protections, in addition to the legislation’s coverage and access provisions, are essential in ensuring that the Supreme Court’s decision does not impede the commonwealth from providing equitable care for all birthing people and for patients seeking services that support and affirm their gender identity.”
