Abortion

IPPF works to ensure that every woman and girl has the human right to choose to be pregnant or not and we will continue to supply and support safe and legal abortion services and care. We are committed to reducing the number of deaths of women and girls who are forced to turn to unsafe abortion methods. Make Abortion Safe. Make Abortion Legal. For all Women and Girls. Everywhere.

When the global gag rule was introduced, the Lesotho Planned Parenthood Association lost more than funding, it lost the years of hard work in building trust and relationships in communities. With the introduction of the Belgian funded, She Decides programme, relationships with impacted communities are slowly being rebuilt.
When the US administration expanded the Mexico City Policy (aka the Global Gag Rule), the impact on healthcare was felt immediately in hard-to-reach areas in countries like Lesotho. Thanks to emergency funds from SheDecides, Lesotho Planned Parenthood Association is slowly rebuilding.
