Cedar River Clinics, run by the Feminist Women’s Health Center (FWHC), has provided compassionate reproductive health care, birth control, and abortions for over 40 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: Ensure access to reproductive and sexual health care through direct services, advocacy, and community education to defend bodily autonomy and advance social justice.
VISION: We have a vision of the world where we are all free to make our own decisions regarding our bodies, reproduction, and sexuality – creating communities where we can fulfill our own unique potential and live healthy whole lives with dignity.
- 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.
