ASA Comment on Supreme Court Decision on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization
The American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) is committed to patient safety and the integrity of the patient-physician relationship. Maternal and reproductive health are vital components of the care we provide every day. As anesthesiologists, we have a responsibility to provide the safest possible anesthesia care to our patients—often at the most vulnerable times of their lives. Physicians must practice medicine and provide care to our patients guided by our medical education, experience, and evidence. ASA’s efforts will continue to be focused on demonstrating our commitment to anesthesiologists, their patients, and their well-being.
