Comparative reproductive rights
Reproductive rights are hard-won across the globe. From forced sterilization to high-risk abortions to limited access to healthcare and to contraception, the fight for reproductive justice is necessary across the world. According to Amnesty International, over 14 million teenagers give birth each year and 47,000 people die each year due to abortion complications. In Europe, 23 countries require transgender people to be sterilized before legal recognition of their gender and there are 76 countries across the world that criminalize homosexuality. Each country has its own laws regarding reproductive rights. Check out the Guttmacher Institutes global reports for a better understanding of what reproductive rights look like across the world.
