About Us

Cedar River Clinics, run by the Feminist Women’s Health Center (FWHC), has provided compassionate reproductive health care, birth control, and abortions for over 30 years.

FWHC was founded in Yakima in 1979 by two young women who wanted woman-centered health care in their community. Subsequently clinics in Renton and Tacoma were added when their physician-owners retired from medicine and the name Cedar River Clinics was adopted.  In 2014, we acquired Aurora Medical Services and opened our Seattle clinic.  For more information on our history, visit www.fwhc.org.

Cedar River Clinics is a social justice organization that combines direct services (abortion, birth control, reproductive healthcare), with advocacy and activism (to preserve and ensure access) and community education (to demystify health information and empower health decisions.)

MISSION: To achieve reproductive freedom, we provide abortion and reproductive health services and information, so women may determine their own destinies.

VISION: We have a vision of a world where all women freely make their own decisions regarding their bodies, reproduction, and sexuality — a world where all women can fulfill their own unique potential and live healthy whole lives.

  • We trust and respect women’s decisions. One in three women will have an abortion in their lifetimes.
  • We value the equality of all regardless of age, ethnicity, language, income, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, body size, nationality, cultural heritage, religion or political views.
  • We believe reproductive and sexual freedoms are fundamental human rights for all worldwide.

Physicians and health professionals at Cedar River Clinics are abortion care experts with many years experience. As the only AAAHC, accredited abortion provider in Washington, our clinics meet the rigorous standards for quality set by the Accreditation Association of Ambulatory Health Centers and are the Number One place where physicians around the Pacific Northwest refer women.

Cedar River Clinics are also certified by National Abortion Federation and members of Feminist Abortion Network, and operated by the nonprofit Feminist Women’s Health Center of Washington State.

This is completely insane...
"Should women be allowed to create and play video games without fear of being murdered in real life?"
