Reproductive Rights and Global Women's Health

The act of bringing a human being into the world is dangerous and an ultimate act of courage and self-sacrifice made by people who can become pregnant. Major policy changes such as the US Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade will introduce unprecedented restriction to abortion care and, in some cases, access to contraception. Fear of legal repercussions can compromise care even for those who are experiencing miscarriages.

Many of our global partners have now surpassed us in their support of their individual citizens’ rights to make medical decisions based on what is best for their health and the wellbeing of their families. We look forward to learning from and with our partners in the ongoing fight for reproductive rights for all.
