Asia Safe Abortion Partnership Youth Champions – Sri Lanka

IT’S HER RIGHT- To Mr. President: Advocacy video on safe and legal abortion

Country: Sri Lanka

City: Colombo

ASAP Sri Lank  will be launching an advocacy video with real life stories from women who have undergone an unsafe abortion in Sri Lanka. This video can be used as an advocacy tool to advocate for relaxations/ changes in abortion law in Sri Lanka which is currently restricted. This is followed by a post card campaign where we posted hundreds of post cards to the president of Sri Lanka collecting from people around the country expressing why safe and legal abortion is needed in Sri Lanka. Several email were sent to the president secretariat by ASAP Youth champions from Sri Lanka, explaining the purpose of sending the post cards and there were several print media articles in National papers about the project as well. This video will be shown in different platforms, forums, and meetings to advocate for safe and legal abortion rights. This will be shared widely on social media.
