Does the term “reproductive health” include abortion? WYA weighs in on the debate with the launch of our new Reproductive Health White Paper — the first in a series of White Papers that address critical areas in international law where the protection of human dignity is needed. Abortion proponents claim that various documents of international law include abortion as a part of reproductive health. An examination of these documents reveals that no international legal document names abortion as a component of reproductive health.
The White Paper was authored by Meghan Grizzle, World Youth Alliance Research and Policy Specialist.
