WGNRR calls partners, member and allies to endorse a statement on safe abortion in the Post-2015

WGNRR was a contributor and a signatory to a statement (ENGLISH, SPANISH) of the International Campaign for Women’s Right to Safe Abortion (ICWRSA) released after the 47th Session of the Commission on Population and Development (CPD47).

In the statement the ICWRSA welcomed the Outcome Resolution of CPD47, especially in relation to its language on ensuring safe abortion. Drawing attention to the available public health and human rights evidence supporting safe, legal abortion, ICWRSA called on the UN agencies and bodies to undertake pro-active educational efforts on women’s need for safe abortion and put women’s right to safe abortion on the post-2015 agenda. Also, supporters of women's right to safe abortion were urged to give safe abortion the visibility and support at the global, regional and local level consultations and negotiations.
