International Safe Abortion Day 2017

We call on the United Nations and its agencies – UN Women, UNFPA, WHO, UNAIDS, UNESCO and UNICEF, the European Union and the Ministers of Health of all national governments to make a public statement in support of International Safe Abortion Day, 28 September, as a symbolic marker of all women’s right to life and health. 

We call on the European Union and the leaders of all national governments to follow in the footsteps of the ‘She Decides’ Initiative and commit increased funding and human resources to global public health, including for sexual and reproductive health and rights – and including for safe abortion – as part of the Sustainable Development Goals.

We call on all the members of the International Campaign for Women’s Right to Safe Abortion to organise activities for 28 September 2017 and develop the theme #LeavingNoOneBehind in ways relevant to your national context.
