The topic of abortion remains absent from most comprehensive sexuality education programs, even in places where abortion is legal. This diminishes young people’s ability to avoid the dangers of unsafe abortion, to make fully informed choices, and to exercise their right to safe, legal abortion.
It’s essential that young people have information about interruption of pregnancy, understand the laws in their context, and know how to access safe services.
During two days, in the frame of YATAS (Youth Activism to Tackle Abortion Stigma) in our youth center “Po” we talked about abortion stigma and trained young volunteers on how to tackle such stigma in their community.
Young people used balloons to share their messages on how to reduce abortion stigma.
