The Emergency Medicine Residents’ Association (EMRA) expresses deep concern and sadness over the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn precedent set by Roe v. Wade.

As the organization that represents the future of emergency medicine, EMRA supports patient access to reproductive health, including abortion. EMRA believes that decisions about reproductive health should remain in the domain of patients and their doctors, guided by patients’ faiths, spiritualities, and personal circumstances, along with evidence-based medicine.

“The process of deciding the direction of a pregnancy is a deeply personal, and physical, journey for our patients, and a physician must be able to support the patient unconditionally, with medical expertise rooted in facts and science,” said Angela Cai, MD, MBA, EMRA president.

Abortion is health care.
