Catholic Medical Association
American Association of Pro Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists (AAPLOG) Mission Statement

As members of AAPLOG we affirm:

  1. That we, as physicians, are responsible for the care and well being of both our pregnant woman patient and her unborn child.
  2. That the unborn child is a human being from the time of fertilization.
  3. That elective disruption/abortion of human life at any time from fertilization onward constitutes the willful destruction of an innocent human being, and that this procedure will have no place in our practice of the healing arts.
  4. That we are committed to educate abortion-vulnerable patients, the general public, pregnancy center counselors, and our medical colleagues regarding the medical and psychological complications associated with induced abortion, as evidenced in the scientific literature.
  5. That we are deeply concerned about the profound, adverse effects that elective abortion imposes, not just on the women, but also on the entire involved family, and on our society at large.

The following is not a part of our Mission Statement, but addresses this frequently asked question that arises from pro-life doctors who read our Mission Statement:

What is AAPLOG's position on "abortion to save the life of the mother"?

Abortion is the purposeful killing of the unborn in the termination of a pregnancy. AAPLOG opposes abortion. When extreme medical emergencies that threaten the life of the mother arise (chorioamnionitis or HELLP syndrome could be examples), AAPLOG believes in "treatment to save the mother’s life," including premature delivery if that is indicated — obviously with the patient's informed consent. This is NOT "abortion to save the mother’s life." We are treating two patients, the mother and the baby, and every reasonable attempt to save the baby's life would also be a part of our medical intervention. We acknowledge that, in some such instances, the baby would be too premature to survive.
