MOBILISE FOR ACCESS SAFE AND LEGAL ABORTION!

6 Sep

In commemoration of September 28 – The Global Day of Action for Access to Safe and Legal Abortion and in solidarity with the September 28 Campaign for Decriminalisation of Abortion in Latin America and the Caribbean, the Women’s Global Network for Reproductive Rights calls on her members, partners, allies, other SRHR advocates, individuals and communities dedicated to promoting women’s reproductive freedoms everywhere to mobilise for women’s right to access safe and legal abortion!

Every woman has the right to life, dignity, bodily integrity, personal liberty, privacy,  self-determination, the highest level of reproductive health, and the right to live free from violence and discrimination. In countries where abortion is criminalised or otherwise restricted by laws, economic, physical, and cultural barriers, women are systematically denied their basic human rights.
