AAPLOG, an organization with thousands of members and associates, formerly held the title of a "special interest group" within ACOG for four decades, from 1973 to 2013. Their mission centers around reaffirming the intrinsic value and dignity of human life from the moment of fertilization onward. In contrast to prevailing cultural and professional opinions advocating elective abortion on demand and recommending abortion for "defective" fetuses, AAPLOG opposes these values. They emphasize the physician's role as a caregiver for both the mother and her unborn child and express concerns about the potential long-term adverse consequences of abortion on women's health, despite inadequate abortion-related complication reporting in the United States. The organization actively seeks data from around the world to highlight these health risks. Additionally, AAPLOG advocates for a physician's right of conscience in medical decision-making and expresses apprehension about international pressures promoting "universal access to abortion" and "abortion as a fundamental human right." They also encourage their members to engage with Pregnancy Resource Centers and programs that support women facing "crisis pregnancies."
