    ACOG Statement on DOJ’s Reversal of Position regarding the Affordable Care Act

    “The Affordable Care Act is an American success story. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) strongly opposes the administration’s decision yesterday to reverse its prior position and support the full invalidation of the Affordable Care Act. ACOG calls on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit to uphold the law. Invalidation of the ACA will have a significant and devastating impact on the health and well-being of all Americans, especially women and families."
