Abortion Care Network


The Abortion Care Network is the driving force behind the movement to de-stigmatize and normalize the abortion experience while offering support and training to abortion providers.

Founded by the merger of the National Coalition of Abortion Providers and the Abortion Conversation Project, ACN has created a network of independent abortion providers, supportive allied organizations, and socially conscious individuals who are deeply invested in creating an environment where women who choose abortion, and those that provide care, are no longer harassed or shamed by the choices they make.

The Abortion Care Network takes advantage of all avenues of communication to connect the abortion care community, offering many levels of resources, support and networking opportunities. Current examples: monthly webinars for frontline staff, downloadable protocol-sharing from members, issue oriented teleconferences, a Facebook page and print and online newsletters. ACN reaches millions of women through our members and through on-line venues, and quality handouts.

Along with challenging a stigmatized view of abortion, ACN members are also dedicated to the training of the next generation of abortion providers. ACN focuses on the underserved front line staff including counselors, advocates, clinic administrators and medical support staff who care for women and their families. With the “graying” of abortion providers, ACN’s commitment is to ensure that future providers get the support they need in order to provide the best in abortion care. With the vast majority of all abortions in the U.S. provided by independent providers, it is critical that there is an organization dedicated to continually raising the bar for quality abortion care.

    ACN is the network that connects providers experiencing harassment as they go public with videos of the harassment that they experience on a daily basis, and harness the power of on-line social networking. ACN is creating a positive movement to expose this damaging and stigmatizing activity and bring hope to clinic workers.

    I dont know this ACN thing, but whoever wrote this is not very smart. They said the same thing twice up top. Sue Wicklund is a notorious killer of babies!

      What are talking about, it looks like the format is far from perfect, how does one make that leap of inference you just made?

      What about the work they do helping abortion rights, thats the issue, not their Font!

      I’m fine with Park Young as back up for RVP, of course idlaley, i’d prefer NB52 to stay but its not an ideal world now, is it. But given RVP’s injury record, I think Theo will get a decent run of games as a CF, but again Theo is not exactly the fittest on the planet. Which is why I suppose, we have Gerv, the Korean captain and dare i say it, AA23. Say what you want about our uninspiring new striking option, I think you don’t become a captain of your national team if you’re as useless as some Arsenal fans are making you out to be.We will need someone in the midfield as Jack’s injury has shades of Vermalen all over it. We definitely should buy a left back and I think we’ll survive with out current batch of central defenders, I feel that Iggy can be trusted as an able fourth choice behind Verm, Kozzer and Johan.Now that I’ve written that, I think it wouldn’t be so bad if we bought a Cahill or a Jagielka. But bear in mind that TV5 and LK6 have formed an excellent understanding in the middle, who would you bench in favor of a new arrival. As a counter argument, we could say that at any given time at least half our squad seems to be on crutches or serving suspensions. So expecting our first choice defenders to be fit through the season may be naive.Well that’s why we are not the ones making decisions, eh? Exciting times!

    I just want you to know that I support your cause somewhat. I don’t feel there is anything wrong with abortions even though I am a pentecostal. The bottom line is God forgives. I wish I’d gotten one several years ago, but I love my children now, so it was for the best. Still life could have been so much different
