Aims

Promote, in every country and for all women equally, a woman's right to decide whether, when and how to have children - regardless of nationality, class, race, ethnicity, age, religion, disability, sexuality or marital status - in the social, economic and political conditions that make such decisions possible. Reproductive rights means the right to: safe, effective contraception and sterilization; safe, legal abortion; safe, women-controlled pregnancy and childbirth; full information about sexuality and reproduction, about reproductive health and health problems and about benefits and risks of drugs, devices, medical treatments and interventions, without which informed choice is impossible; good quality, comprehensive reproductive health services that meet women's need and are accessible to all women.
