Reproductive Rights

Zonta International is an organization pledged to improve the health status of women.

Zonta International calls on governments to ensure, on a basis of equality of men and women:

  • the elimination of all child marriages and similar unions

  •  equal rights to decide freely and responsibly on the number and spacing of children and to have access to the information, education and means to exercise these rights

  • access to health care services, including those services related to family planning

  • the prevention of unwanted pregnancies

  • access to safe, legal abortions
