International Safe Abortion Day
28 September as an international day of action for decriminalization of abortion was launched in Latin America and the Caribbean in 1990 by the Campaña 28 Septiembre, a regional network of activist groups, who have been organizing activities in support of safe abortion around that date in the region ever since.
1. To promote universal access to safe abortion as a women’s health and human rights issue.
2. To support women’s autonomy to make their own decisions whether and when to have children and have access to the means of acting on those decisions without risk to their health and lives.
3. To campaign for a moratorium on prosecutions for abortion and the removal of abortion from the criminal law.
