STATEMENT ON DOBBS V. JACKSON

Partners in Contraceptive Choice and Knowledge (PICCK) believes that abortion is and always will be a human right. Every person has a right to comprehensive family planning services, including deciding if and when to parent. We believe that abortion is health care and a vital component to family planning. 

We are deeply concerned about the implications of the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization opinion for access to all reproductive health care, including contraception. Our role as providers is, and will always be, to support patients in achieving their contraceptive needs and pregnancy desires. As we live and work within this new reality, we are committed to patient autonomy and remaining patient-centered. We encourage providers to continue counseling on the full range of methods and centering patients’ preferences and values. 

Despite our fears about the uncertainty of this moment, we are here to support providers and patients with education and resources. Below are some resources that PICCK has created that may be helpful. As always, our peer organizations continue to produce helpful resources on these topics. 

 AMA Ed Hub Collaboration

PICCK is now a featured content provider on the AMA Ed Hub™ — the American Medical Association’s online learning platform. By featuring high-quality education from trusted sources, the site helps physicians and other medical professionals stay current and improve the care they provide. Our first course, Choosing the Right Emergency Contraception With Your Patient, is available on the AMA Ed Hub for CME and CNE credit. You can view the course by clicking the button below.

MISSION

To promote excellence and equity in contraceptive care through provider education and practice transformation.
