NETHERLANDS: Women Help Women (WHW)


Women Help Women (WHW)

Women Help Women, an international group linking activists, organisations and researchers around the world to increase the availability of reproductive health choices, is collecting statements from women around the globe about why they risk imprisonment to help women access the abortion pills they need to preserve their rights and autonomy.

Women Help Women published an article on Sex Rights Africa Network’s website for September 28th about abortion stigma: Empowering women and de-stigmatising abortion with pills.

On #Sept28 2016, International Safe Abortion Day, Women Help Women launched a collection of statements and stories from people who risk jail to help others access abortion, entitled: “Women help women everywhere. We help because it is a moral thing to do.” We share six of them here.
