IPPF has launched a campaign calling for a 10-year-old Paraguayan girl who became pregnant after being sexually abused by her stepfather to be allowed to have a safe abortion.
The girl who is now 22 weeks pregnant is being denied an abortion by the authorities in Paraguay who say her life is not at risk and because of that it would not be legal for her to have an abortion.
“Immediately after my child was born, I found the market family planning booth to receive free services. The services are right in my community and taking family planning has been a good experience. Things have changed in my life because I can now save money and do other things. I tell my friends they must take their family planning!” - Marie Kamara, 35, Liberia
