As the Texas Medical Association digests and analyzes the full impact for Texas of the U.S. Supreme Court decision in Roe vs. Wade, President Gary W. Floyd, MD, issued the following statement today in response to the ruling.
“TMA remains committed to protecting the privacy and sanctity of the patient-physician relationship. TMA is unwavering in its stance against intrusions by government or other third parties that impede the patient-physician relationship, and any criminalization of acceptable and appropriate medical practices that may jeopardize that relationship or patients’ safety.
“Especially in high-risk situations, patients need to know their physicians will be there to care for them, and TMA will continue to work with state lawmakers to ensure a safe practice environment for physicians and their patients.”
