The mission of the Texas Association of Obstetricians and Gynecologists is to promote the art and science of medicine, specifically Obstetrics and Gynecology, for the betterment of women's health care in Texas.
The Texas Association of Obstetricians and Gynecologists will be the leading force in Texas for solutions, knowledge and tools that promote health care for women.
The Texas Association of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recognizes that the abortion debate involves complex moral issues of profound importance to its members and society while also acknowledging that thoughtful members hold a variety of positions with respect to abortion ethics.
However, TAOG strongly opposes any measures that interfere with the patient-physician relationship, especially under the threat of felony. We are gravely concerned that recent state laws and now the reversal of Roe v. Wade will have unintended consequences that will potentially increase maternal risk and further worsen health disparities among our society. We also believe the best way to decrease unintended pregnancy is through prevention, including improved access to contraception.
TAOG is hopeful that policy makers will work with organizations, such as ours, as they revise and create new laws and policies that relate to the care of women and their families.
