📣We support the right of a woman to make her own sexual & reproductive choices
Join us on Sept 30 as we talk SRH to the youth of South Africa 🇿🇦 and ask them about their choices particularly amid#COVID19D19
Many people say 'abortion or contraception is a restriction against human nature'. But then, so are diseases, plague & eventual death, but that's why we have medicines & science-to increase our life spans. Then why restrict #SafeAbortions?
Today, on #InternationalSafeAbortionDay along with our Youth Champions we want to ask why terminating an unwanted pregnancy is considered a criminal act in many countries, when unsafe abortions still remain one of the biggest reason for maternal mortality.
Getting a #SafeAbortion as per their request, is often the last end of the spectrum where an individual reclaims their right over their bodies & their lives. We must provide people with adequate information & support to make that choice.
Looking after our health & future is a basic human right, that all individuals must have. Abortion laws often miss out #transpersons who might also need abortion, but are rarely protected from the 'moral judgement' of service providers.
How can cervical cancer be prevented?
The most effective ways to prevent #CervicalCancer are to:
✔️ Vaccinate girls against #HPV before they have sex for the first time
✔️ Regularly screen women aged 30-49 years.
