We are devastated by the recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling overturning the Roe vs Wade decision that legalized abortion in our country 50 years ago. States now have the autonomy to create their own standards for abortion and access to this care.
This landmark decision will have far-reaching consequences. RJOS remains committed to supporting our female colleagues who may need these services and to all of our patients that need access to appropriate care.
Reproductive rights are human rights! Women should have control over decisions related to their healthcare, just as men have. Equality is a necessity in orthopaedic surgery and in our country!
Although we are heartbroken, we must stay strong and support each other in this difficult time.
