from President & CEO Steve Walsh

“In the two years since the Dobbs ruling, we have seen its devastating impact on patients and providers around the country. Our caregivers take an oath to provide lifesaving care to everyone they serve, regardless of the personal cost, and it is not a given that elected leaders share in that commitment. That makes the partnership we have in the commonwealth all the more important. The Healey-Driscoll Administration stands shoulder-to-shoulder with our providers on safeguarding emergency abortion services, and we applaud the enormous step announced today. MHA and our members will continue to do everything in our shared power to protect the patients and professionals at the heart of reproductive care in Massachusetts.”
