Joint statement on Protecting Abortion Access in Europe
AS the decision by the United States Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade, thereby dismantling the US constitutional right to abortion, ILGA-europe joins the center for reproductive rights, alongside many other organisations calling on european decision makers to remove impediments in access to abortion care.
The decision by the United States Supreme Court in Dobbs vs. Jackson Women’s Health Organisation overturns Roe v. Wade, thereby dismantling the US constitutional right to abortion. The decision will have a profound and devastating impact.
As local and global women’s rights, human rights and sexual and reproductive health and rights organisations working in Europe, we express our profound solidarity with the millions of people in the United States whose right to essential reproductive health care has been taken away by this decision and with all of those who have sought
to protect and uphold this right.
