We make sure the voices of providers and patients are heard in state and federal policymaking.

Ensuring safe, legal, and accessible abortion care for all women, regardless of their income level or other social barriers, drives our legal and public policy work.

The legal and policy experience of NAF’s staff allows us to bring NAF’s unique knowledge to elected officials, their staff, and the media. With the expertise of our members and the compelling stories of women who have faced barriers in accessing abortion care, we are able to focus on the practical aspects of policy initiatives in debates about anti-abortion legislation. We provide factual information about abortion and standards of care, perspectives from medical professionals, and the real-life experiences of NAF’s abortion provider members and women who have chosen abortion care.
