Blue Ribbon Campaign – Safe Abortion is legal in South Africa
‘My Body, My Choice.’ The Blue Ribbon campaign supports women’s rights to safe and legal abortions.
Furthermore, we aim to empower women with access to accurate information and resources about safe abortions so that they are able to make an informed choice about their sexual and reproductive health.
The importance of the Blue Ribbon campaign’s mission is reiterated by the following frightening statistics: according to the Gutthmaker Foundation, ‘an estimated 52% of women get their abortion service from the illegal market’, and Amnesty International stated that ‘[only] 40% of TOP-designated facilities in South Africa actually provide the service.’
We want to reach the day when all women in South Africa can proudly say, ‘I am in control of my body! I have the legal right to have a safe abortion performed by high-quality women’s healthcare facilities.’
How we help
Our vision is to raise awareness about accessibility to women’s healthcare facilities throughout the country for women who need safe and legal
abortion care. Let’s work together towards a future where every birth is wanted.
