National Association of Pro Life Nurses

NAPN is a not-for-profit organization uniting nurses who seek excellence in nurturing for all, including the unborn, newborn, disabled, mentally and or/physically ill, the aged and the dying. Beginning in 1973, when abortion was accepted as a legal alternative to pregnancy, healthcare professionals have been confronted by an ever-increasing number of morally challenging life issues. The list of ethical dilemmas continues to grow: in vitro fertilization, cloning, fetal experimentation, organ donation and transplantation, nutrition and hydration, patient rights, certain sterilization practices, looming rationing of medical resources, assisted suicide and euthanasia, and stem cell research with its promise of advances in the treatment of disease. No one is more affected by these morally challenging issues than the nurse and the pressure to utilize unethical techniques and practices in the care of patients is increasing. Through a united,educational, professional organization such as NAPN, nurses can, in good conscience, deliver the best possible patient care while preserving, protecting and defending respect for human life.

Official Statement of the National Association of Pro-life Nurses on
​Whole Women's Health v. Hellerstadt decision of the U.S. Supreme Court

The National Association of Pro-life Nurses joins the chorus of astonished Americans who are in disbelief that the Supreme Court of the United States has turned their backs on American women who procure abortions in facilities which do not meet the same health and safety standards as other facilities performing similar invasive procedures. In Whole Women’s Health V. Hellerstadt the Supreme Court has once again sacrificed the health and well-being of women to political correctness in its 5-3 decision. This is the real War on Women. As the American Association of Pro-Life OB Gyns say, it is Supreme Stupidity as it drastically reduces the safety of abortion across the United States. If the Texas law and similar other state laws across the country incur an “undue burden” on the abortion industry, do not similar laws governing the safety and health standards of other free-standing clinics also place an undue burden on the operators thereby negating the justification of such laws? This is a sad day for the health of Americans everywhere with its far reaching implications and for those of us in the medical profession who
​are forced to observe these tragic decisions. Such is the state of political correctness in America today.


Consider a tax deductible donation to Nurses for Life to help protect the lives of the unborn,
​newborns, the disabled, mentally and or physically ill, the aged, and the dying.
