29 Jun ESC Calls on European Leaders to Act Now to Protect Access to Abortion
ESC endorses the Call to action from the Center for Reproductive Rights.
The decision by the United States Supreme Court in Dobbs vs. Jackson Women’s Health Organization overturns Roe v. Wade, thereby dismantling the U.S. constitutional right to abortion. The decision will have a profound and devastating impact.
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.
ESC together with over 70 organizations call on decision makers across the continent to remove residual barriers to abortion access that remain in place in national laws and policies.
The time is now to turn support for sexual and reproductive health and rights into action.
