As experts in pediatrics and advocates for children, NAPNAP reiterates its commitment to the health and well-being of all children. NAPNAP firmly stands for equitable access to health care, which includes the fundamental right to patient-provider confidentiality and decision-making capability as essential components in delivering comprehensive high-quality evidence-based health care. Highly educated health care providers, in concert with patients and their families, are best positioned to participate in shared decision making that meets the individual and deeply personal needs of each young person. We stand ready to assist as adolescents and families navigate the impact of the U.S. Supreme Court decision that overturns Roe v. Wade.
