Commitment by the Campaign

The International Campaign for Women’s Right to Safe Abortion commits to campaigning for the following to achieve zero preventable maternal deaths by 2030:

  • decriminalisation of abortion
  • universal access to safe abortion in every country
  • availability of safe abortion at the woman’s/girl’s request

in recognition that safe abortion is necessary to achieve gender equality and of women’s and girls’ right to life and health.
