Comprehensive abortion care matters...

Because women’s lives matter.
Each year, approximately 47,000 women die due to unsafe abortions, almost all in developing countries.
Because reproductive rights are human rights.
Approximately 95 percent of unsafe abortions take place in developing countries where family-planning information and services are limited, and where women often face economic, social, cultural and geographic barriers to reproductive health care.
Because it’s a critical public health issue.
An estimated 21.6 million of the world’s poorest women endure unsafe abortions each year.
Learn more about why comprehensive abortion care matters.
