Position Statement on Reproductive Rights

Being a pro-feminist organization, NOMAS defers to the position of the National Organization for Women on the issue of reproductive rights of women. For each of the following issues:

  • legislation about parental and/or paternal consent
  • catastrophic late-term abortion
  • presidential gag-rules
  • public funds for contraception and/or abortion
  • US Military personnel access to abortion
  • US support for organizations at home and abroad that provide abortion services
  • inaccessibility of abortion providers to women in substantial areas of the country
  • mandatory sterilization
  • religious hospitals’ refusal to provide facilities and/or services
  • punitive reactions from local, state and national institutions

as well as on other issues, NOMAS affirms and supports the individual woman’s right to choose, without governmental, judicial and familial interference.
