Statement of Principles

Ohio Physicians for Reproductive Rights is dedicated to reproductive healthcare advocacy. Our guiding principle is to uphold and expand access to safe, legal, equitable, and comprehensive reproductive medical care for all Ohioans, while fiercely protecting patients’ right to make their own reproductive healthcare decisions, free from government interference.

  • We champion the role of medical professionals as frontline advocates and experts, facilitating their engagement with the media, public, and policymakers. Our goal is to ensure that the lived experiences and expert perspectives of healthcare providers inform and shape reproductive health policies and public understanding.
  • We are committed to empowering both medical professionals and patients to participate in activities that drive legal and cultural change, fostering an environment where reproductive rights are recognized and respected as inseparable from human rights.
  • We believe in the fundamental right of individuals to make autonomous reproductive health decisions, free from external interference. This belief is rooted in our deep respect for human dignity and the principles of evidence-based and medical ethics.
  • Our network is a dynamic collective of medical professionals and community advocates dedicated to unifying, informing, and mobilizing the medical community. We recognize the power of our unique collective voice and seek to ensure it resonates within the broader movement for reproductive rights, influencing public discourse, policy, and practice.
  • We are dedicated to not just defending but also advancing reproductive freedoms, setting an example for compassionate, patient-centered care and advocacy. Through our unwavering dedication, we aspire to inspire and lead the charge in protecting and enhancing reproductive rights for every individual in Ohio and beyond.
