Burkina Faso: Coerced and denied: Forced marriages and barriers to contraception in Burkina Faso
Women and girls in Burkina Faso, as in any country in the world, have the right to make their own choices about if, when and whom to marry, and if, when and how many children to have. This report examines how women and girls still lack adequate protection from forced and early marriages and face structural and financial barriers in accessing contraceptive products, including emergency contraception. It highlights how the lack of information about and access to safe abortions contributes to the number of unwanted pregnancies and puts at risk the lives of those women and girls who undergo unsafe and clandestine abortions.
