In light of the September 28 Campaign, the Sexual Rights Initiative is organizing a parallel event at the 30th Session of United Nations Human Rights Council on the topic of:

Unsafe Abortion and Maternal Mortality and Morbidity: What can be done to prevent it?

This event will emphasize the importance of addressing unsafe abortion in order to eliminate preventable maternal mortality and morbidity, identify the human rights dimensions of unsafe abortion, and elaborate State obligations with respect to addressing unsafe abortion.
