Commemorating International Safe Abortion Day

This piece was authored by Jewelle Methazia who is a Senior Research Coordinator at Ibis Reproductive Health’s Johannesburg, South Africa office.

Every year on September 28, International Safe Abortion Day serves as a global platform to raise awareness about safe abortion services and advocate for reproductive rights. This year’s global theme is “Unstoppable Movement: Movement building, solidarity, and justice for the right to safe abortion,” with a subtheme on “Young People’s Leadership in Abortion Justice.” Ibis’s South Africa team is commemorating this significant day by taking a moment to express our gratitude and admiration for the remarkable individuals and organisations who have been at the forefront of advocating for and providing safe abortion care in the African region, and with a number of educational events.

On September 26, we began by spotlighting and honoring the dedication and invaluable contributions of safe abortion care providers who have been instrumental in offering safe abortion services. We are also hosting an engaging and informative social media drive from September 26 to October 3 to amplify the importance of safe abortion by highlighting key studies conducted by Ibis on this crucial topic. Our social media drive will build excitement and anticipation for two major events in commemoration of International Safe Abortion day. Follow along on Facebook and Twitter/X.
