(October 23 – 24, 2010/Seville, Spain) Purpose of Meeting Regarding Conscientious Refusal of Care (CRC)

Over the last ten years, some countries have broadened the circumstances under which abortion is legal and others have introduced measures to increase women’s access to existing services.1 In spite of this progress, in both contexts where abortion is available upon request and where it is legally restricted, medical professionals’ refusal to provide legal services because of conscientious objection threatens women’s access to legal and safe abortion as well as to other components of reproductive health care.
