Five portraits: How safe abortion saves women’s lives

Wednesday, September 13, 2017

The stories presented here are based on real lives and real events. Each one represents thousands of women around the world whose lives Ipas works to improve. Our work is urgent: 44,000 women and girls die each year from unsafe abortions, and millions more suffer serious, often permanent injuries. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Ipas works globally to improve the sexual and reproductive health of women and girls by enhancing their access to safe abortion and contraceptive care.
