USA: Stop Bush from rolling back women's reproductive rights
Source:Women's Global Network for Reproductive Rights
The US has threatened to withdraw from the Cairo Programme of Action of 1994 unless the words reproductive health services and reproductive rights are taken out or changed. This is a shocking development which is a threat to women’s rights and health.
As supporters of women’s rights worldwide, we are deeply disturbed by the stand taken by the US administration at the recent Population and Development Conference in Bangkok held in early November 2002. We demand that the Cairo Program of Action that has been endorsed by 179 nations be upheld. Reproductive health services and reproductive rights are essential human rights.
