“Reproductive freedom is critical to a whole range of issues. If we can’t take charge of this most personal aspect of our lives, we can’t take care of anything. It should not be seen as a privilege or as a benefit, but a fundamental human right.” ― Faye Wattleton
This Saturday, July 11th, is World Population Day. With this observance, the UN calls “on leaders, policymakers, grassroots organizers, institutions, and others to help make reproductive health and rights a reality for all.” Access to safe, egalitarian, and non-judgemental reproductive services should be a basic human right afforded to all women across the world.
To honor National Population Day, this week we share a few of the organizations that champion women’s health, rights, and safety.
Every Mother Counts was founded in 2010 with the mission to make pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother, everywhere. We will be donating 15% of sales of the Cozy Waffle Wrap to support their work of achieving quality, respectful, and equitable maternity care for all. To learn more about the organization, how you can help, and where you can find resources for maternal health and care visit here.
