How the world showed their abortion solidarity for
International Safe Abortion Day
Photo exhibit and captivating stories by the World Health Organization that highlights how access to safe abortion ensures healthy outcomes. They shared stories that spotlights the unstoppable movements that fought for and protected safe abortion care access everywhere.
From UN Women: Today is #SafeAbortion Day and here’s a FACT: Over 103 million women & girls live in places where abortion is prohibited altogether. When safe and legal access to abortion is restricted, women and girls are forced to resort to less safe methods, often with damaging results.
From the Embassy of the Netherlands: Today, on Safe Abortion Day, we express our unwavering support for a woman’s right to choose her reproductive health without fear or judgment. The Netherlands stands for the rights of women to make decisions about their own bodies and lives. Safe abortion is a matter of dignity, equality, and human rights.
The European Human Rights and Gender Ambassadors marks International Safe Abortion Day with a statement: “Women and girls in all their diversities have a right to make decisions about their own bodies and lives! Today on International #SafeAbortionDay, we highlight the power of collective action and social movements.”
Let us remain unstoppable as we advance bodily autonomy and reproductive justice
While we conclude the September 28 global day of action, may we remain vigilant, unwavering, and unstoppable. Today and everyday we stand in abortion solidarity to celebrate gains that have made abortions accessible and safe, and to fight against anti-rights attacks. We enjoin all of you to sustain the message to persist as an #UnstoppableMovement working in #AbortionSolidarity to advance bodily autonomy and reproductive justice.
Thank you and may we come together again in future campaigns!
