Sexual and Reproductive Rights
Whoever you are, wherever you live, all the decisions you make about your own body should be yours. Yet all over the world, many of us are persecuted for making our own choices and many more are prevented from making any choices at all. Governments are trying to dictate who we can kiss, who we should love, how we must dress, how we identify ourselves, when we have children, and how many we have. Sexual and reproductive rights mean you should be able to make your own decisions about your body and:
• get accurate information about these issues • access sexual and reproductive health services including contraception• choose if, when and who to marry• decide if you want to have children and how many
They also mean our lives should be free from all forms of sexual violence, including rape, female genital mutilation, forced pregnancy, forced abortion and forced sterilization.
