Healthy Pregnancies

Being pro-choice includes supporting a woman’s right and decision to become a parent or to choose adoption. We stand with women who are continuing their pregnancies and want to ensure that they have the resources they need to have healthy pregnancies and raise healthy children.

Some anti-choice politicians talk about "respecting life," "protecting children," and "valuing family," but the way they vote doesn't square with this stance. A major anti-choice organization even opposed the Children's Health Insurance Program, a federal program that provides millions of low-income children with access to basic health care.

Many anti-choice politicians not only want to take away a woman's ability to choose not to have children; they also refuse to help and support women and their families who continue their pregnancies and have children. That's hypocritical.

We can't let anti-choice groups get away with this kind of hypocrisy, because women and their families are the ones who suffer. Being pro-choice is about supporting women in making the personal decisions that are best for them and their families, and we can do a lot to help all women have healthy pregnancies, births and children.

  • Quality prenatal care is so important. That's the best way to achieve a healthy pregnancy and early childhood.
  • Some moms and their families need additional help accessing health care, and that's why family-planning programs, basic early childhood health care, and other forms of health care support for low-income families are so important.
  • Women and couples who choose adoption deserve respect, support and resources.
