Since its inception, the Centro de Derechos Reproductivos has catalyzed the power of law and moral force of derechos humanos standards to attain reproductive self-determination for women around the world. Our pioneering litigation, tireless legal advocacy, and savvy derechos humanos strategies both safeguard the gains we have already made and revolutionize how courts and lawmakers understand salud reproductiva y derechos.
The stakes are high: as the stories in the annual report make clear, women’s very dignity and lives depend on their ability to obtain the full range of salud reproductiva services, while opponents of reproductive self-determination are unrelenting.
Yet we are unafraid to take on seemingly intractable challenges—or break new ground. All our work converges on one point: building a robust body of law that will guarantee safe and accessible salud reproductiva and, with it, every woman’s equality and derechos humanos.
