• Criminalization of the Medical Practice

    The American Academy of Family Physicians takes all reasonable and necessary steps to ensure that evidence-based medical decision-making and treatment, exercised in accordance with evidence-based standards of care, does not become a violation of criminal law. This includes criminalization of clinicians, patients, and those who aid patients in receiving reproductive, abortion, or gender-affirming healthcare across state lines.
