Defending Rights & Saving Lives: 2010 Accomplishments


Primary Content

No woman should have to risk her life because she cannot get the essential reproductive care she deserves. This tenet is the cornerstone of the Center for Reproductive Rights work. Looking back at 2010, the Center is proud of how it has advanced toward that vision and has helped to restore dignity and freedom for thousands of women here at home and around the world.

As this year comes to an end, and we prepare for the challenges of a new year, the Center would like to take a moment to remember all that was accomplished in 2010. Below is a just a partial list of our efforts to ensure that access to reproductive healthcare is a core part of every woman's essential human rights.

  • Tracked more than 600 anti-choice bills in state legislatures across the U.S. and immediately monitored those that passed for legal action.
  • Convened representatives from dozens of NGOs in Central America, Mexico, and the Spanish Caribbean to meet with a high-ranking United Nations\' representative to discuss sexual and reproductive health challenges in their countries.
