“Everyone has the right to quality reproductive healthcare services and facilities.
This is enshrined in the United Nations #UDHR, #ICPD_PoA, #MaputoProtocol, including the country’s Constitution.
Yet, women & girls access to these rights, particularly their access to safe abortion, are often faced with barriers, legally and or socio-culturally.
Leaving women/girls who chose to terminate a pregnancy either due to economic crisis, sexual violence, health and poverty, with little options but rather to sought ‘back-door’ means which often is unsafe and lethal.”
