International Safe Abortion Day 2016

4) Universal access to safe abortion!

Every woman with an unwanted pregnancy should have the right to a safe abortion, without discrimination, barriers or restrictions. In 1994, the International Conference on Population & Development agreed that unsafe abortion was a serious public health problem. Yet half of all abortions, most of them in the global South, are still unsafe. ~1 million women have died from complications of unsafe abortion since 1994. It’s time for the countries who signed the Programme of Action to make good on their commitment and act now to make all abortions safe. #Trustwomen!
