Global Doctors for Choice signed onto a collaborative advocacy statement, written by a variety of youth-led and sexual and reproductive health rights groups, that urges the Polish government to comply with its human right obligations.
On September 22, 2016, when two relevant reproductive health bills will be presented to the Polish Parliament, this statement also will be presented.
GDC supports this statement that urges the Polish government to dismiss the “Stop Abortion” draft bill and to take immediate action towards the following:
- Ensuring women’s reproductive rights by securing access to safe, legal abortion services throughout the country for all women without stigmatization, intimidation, victimization, or discrimination;
- Tracking the number and conditions of illegal abortions;
- Ensuring access to sexual education and modern contraception to prevent unwanted pregnancies.
