Marie Stopes International Conference on Global Safe Abortion
The Marie Stopes International Conference on Global Safe Abortion, in association with Ipas and Abortion Rights (UK), will be held on October 23rd and 24th this year at the QEII Conference Centre in London. The conference coincides with the 40th anniversary of the UK 1967 Abortion Act. The theme for the conference is "Whose Right? Whose Choice? Who Cares?," and the intent is to "build consensus and momentum around international efforts to reduce the unacceptable toll on women’s health and lives caused by unsafe abortion, through increasing access to safe services, recognising women’s right to self determination and encouraging legal reform."
