Our Member Association in France, Le Planning, has launched a campaign ahead of Global Day of Access to Safe and Legal Abortion. In France, before the legalisation of abortion, some women used hangers and knitting needles to practice clandestine abortions. This practice is still common in countries that do not allow abortion. The campaign aims to highlight that some women still have to go to drastic measures to stop unwanted pregnancies.
