 Reproductive Rights Resolution 2022

The Washington State Public Health Association's Reproductive Rights Resolution was approved by membership at the 2022 Annual Conference for Health. 

The Washington State Public Health Association (WSPHA) is committed to a quality healthcare system that meets the needs and health of all. Accessibility and affordability to all reproductive healthcare, including abortion care, is an essential component of this system. WSPHA is dismayed and saddened by the ruling of the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) overturning nearly fifty years of settled case law, that a person’s right to an abortion is constitutionally protected. This is an example where a fundamental healthcare right has been taken away from persons living in this country. This decision will adversely affect the health and well-being of millions of individuals.
