Reports and Resources

NARAL Pro-Choice Massachusetts has a robust research program to identify gaps in access to reproductive health services and information. We then use this information to guide the development of public policy solutions and public education interventions.

Even today, we have found that access to abortion, family planning, and health education remains an accident of geography, a function of income, and a question of knowledge. And while barriers to health care and information affect all women, those in Massachusetts who are most underserved still face unique obstacles due to their race, ethnicity, class, sexual orientation, or disability.

Abortion Directory (2014)

This website is designed to assist  women in finding resources for dealing with an unwanted pregnancy or pregnancy complications. We have included information on choosing an abortion provider, paying for care, types of abortion services available, and laws that may impact a woman's ability to exercise her right to choose.


"Just Because You're Pregnant...": Lies, Half Truths, and Manipulations at Crisis Pregnancy Centers in Massachusetts (2011)

Crisis Pregnancy Centers (CPCs) are anti-choice organizations with the mission of convincing women facing unplanned or unwanted pregnancies not to choose abortion by giving them medically inaccurate or blatantly false information.To combat these facilities, NARAL Pro-Choice Massachusetts conducted a year-long undercover investigation of CPCs in Massachusetts. Our report exposes the tactics these facilities use that delay women’s access to professional pregnancy care, including pre-natal care, adoption counseling, or abortion.


Decline in Access to Abortion Care in Massachusetts (2011)
Massachusetts, like the rest of the nation, has experienced an overall decline in abortion providers in both clinics and hospitals in recent years. There are also significant – and growing – regional disparities in access to abortion care, with the majority of providers concentrated in the Metro-Boston area.
