The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, which represents 90 percent of all board certified ob-gyns, opposes the federal abortion ban as "inappropriate, ill advised and dangerous."

The American Medical Women's Association (AMWA) opposes the ban, saying it "is gravely concerned with governmental attempts to legislate medical decision-making through measures that do not protect a woman's physical and mental health, including future fertility, or fail to consider other pertinent issues, such as fetal abnormalities."
