September 28, the International Day of the Right to Abortion, will be another opportunity for women around the world to demonstrate for this fundamental right to dispose of their bodies and not to die of a wild abortion. The fight for abortion is a matter of life and death: 1 woman dies every 9 minutes of a clandestine abortion in the world. One in two abortions is an illegal abortion and therefore dangerous and traumatic for the body. Moreover, the attacks of anti-choice are multiplying everywhere, including where abortion seemed definitively acquired. The right to abortion is not just a feminist issue, it is also a matter of class for the poorest women who can not afford to go abroad or to private clinics.
A disparate international situation
In the world only about fifty countries allow abortion, without condition to fulfill (except legal deadlines). For other countries, the situation ranges from total prohibition to extremely restrictive legislation (in case of rape, danger to the health of women or fetal malformation). In Europe, the situation is more favorable, but abortion is often an obstacle course (lack of local structures, clause of conscience of the doctors, not supported financially by the states, etc.)

All women can not have an abortion in France
Those who discover their pregnancy beyond the twelfth week or who have not found a solution before this time can not abort. This did not prevent the rejection of the extension of the 14 to 16 week delay proposed in the last Health Bill. The only solution is therefore to go abroad to have an abortion but this has a cost and is therefore not feasible for the most precarious women or victims of domestic violence who have a hard time justifying an absence of at least two days.

Abortion remains a right to defend
In countries that allow abortion, the battle is now around the resources allocated (places for abortion, doctors trained, financial support) but also on the time to extend. Moreover, we must end the speeches infantilizing women, who need laws to know when they can or not abort. Women do not need lawmakers who decide for them on moral, religious or philosophical issues.

ALL IN THE STREET SEPTEMBER 28th for another day of international solidarity

September 28 will be a new opportunity to find ourselves to claim this fundamental right to dispose our body, to live a safe and dissociated sexuality of procreation, to freely decide to be a mother or not.

On September 28, we will fight here and now:

* that financial resources be given to abortion centers and planning centers so that they are accessible to all in all territories
* for sex education to provide free and informed choices for all
* to ensure that abortion and support techniques for women are part of the initial training of health professionals
* for the conscience clause of health professionals to be removed
* to ensure that the deadlines for abortion are at least based on the most progressive countries in Europe
* for abortion be decriminalized all over the world
