NEC Society Statement on Supreme Court Decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization

The NEC Society is driven by a profound concern for the well-being of patients and families. As such, the NEC Society unequivocally condemns the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. Our organization is committed to accelerating health equity and patient-integrated care. It is vital that patients, in partnership with their physicians, have the freedom and autonomy to make their own healthcare decisions. Reproductive care is healthcare. Abortion is healthcare. The Dobbs decision and the states that limit reproductive rights will actively harm women, the LGBTQ+ community, historically marginalized people, healthcare providers, and the practice of medicine. Accordingly, the NEC Society:

  • Will not host organizational conferences or events in any state that limits reproductive rights
  • Will act in solidarity with health, medical, and patient-advocacy groups dedicated to health equity and reproductive rights
  • Will support access to abortion healthcare within our organization

We encourage you to join us in speaking up and taking action. 

Necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) is a devastating intestinal disease that affects infants in their first weeks and months of life. The NEC Society is a 501c3 non-profit, non-partisan, patient-led organization dedicated to building a more just, equitable world without NEC and thus we will always advocate for the safety and freedom of patients and families consistent with our mission.
