ANA Position Statement - Approved 3/10

The American Nurses Association (ANA) has historically advocated for the healthcare needs of all patients, including services related to reproductive health. ANA believes that healthcare clients have the right to privacy and the right to make decisions about personal health care based on full information and without coercion. Also, nurses have the right to refuse to participate in a particular case on ethical grounds. However, if a client's life is in jeopardy, nurses are obligated to provide for the client's safety and to avoid abandonment.
