The mission of the National Abortion Federation is to ensure safe, legal, and accessible abortion care, which promotes health and justice for women

Our work supports these three fundamental aspects of our mission:

Safe - NAF sets the standard for quality abortion care through our evidence-based Clinical Policy Guidelines (CPGs), which were first issued in 1996 and are revised annually. NAF also provides the accredited continuing medical education and professional training and support health care professionals need to provide the highest quality abortion care.

Legal - NAF provides the medical, provider, and patient perspectives in debates about abortion policies at the federal, state, and provincial levels. NAF's public policy programs include litigating in the courts, submitting amicus briefs in cases affecting NAF members and their patients, and advocating for a fair and independent judiciary to make the decisions that will affect women for generations to come.

Accessible - NAF provides women with the resources they need to make informed decisions about their pregnancies. NAF also works to increase abortion access by training and integrating advanced practice clinicians (APCs)—nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and certified nurse-midwives—into abortion care.
