In 2007, the Center continued to work worldwide to secure recognition of reproductive rights as human rights. We won cases that affirmed the right to safe abortion. We challenged laws and policies that blocked women's access to contraception and life-saving emergency obstetric care. We forged powerful new partnerships. And we crafted a long-term strategy that marries litigation with human rights advocacy and education. All of these accomplishments are steps toward a universal guarantee of women's basic rights to health, autonomy, and dignity.
