The North Carolina Medical Society Board of Directors has unanimously approved a new policy addressing reproductive health care.

The Access to Comprehensive Reproductive Health Care reinforces the NCMS fundamental belief that medical decisions should be made between a patient and their physician/clinician. This is especially true when it comes to personal and complex decisions around reproductive health.

The policy is a joint effort between the NCMS Policy Committee, NCMS Ethical & Judicial Affairs Committee, and external experts in obstetrics and gynecology, and emergency medicine.

The new policy reflects the NCMS Mission, Vision, and Guiding Principles and underscores the Society’s unwavering support for patients and physicians/clinicians who face some of life’s most difficult decisions.
