Attorney General Affirms That Publicly-Funded Hospitals Must Provide Abortion Care


Great news! Attorney General Bob Ferguson released an opinion today stating that Washington hospitals that receive public funding and provide maternity care without also providing abortion care are in violation of state law.

Attorney General Ferguson’s opinion, released in response to an inquiry from Senator Kevin Ranker (D-Orcas Island), comes as a welcome affirmation of a woman’s right to make her own personal healthcare decisions, as well as unhindered access to the full spectrum of reproductive healthcare options.
