American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians & Gynecologists (AAPLOG) is a non-profit professional
medical organization that consists of 3,000 obstetrician-gynecologist members and associates. AAPLOG
held the title of “special interest group” within the American College/Congress of Obstetricians and
Gynecologists (ACOG) from 1973 to 2013 until this designation was discontinued by ACOG. AAPLOG is
concerned about the quality of care provided to pregnant women and the potential long-term adverse
consequences of abortion on women’s future health, and explores data from around the world regarding
abortion-associated complications (such as depression, substance abuse, suicide, other pregnancy-
associated mortality, subsequent preterm birth, and placenta previa) in order to provide the general
public and others with a realistic appreciation and understanding of abortion-related health risks.
