This right is enshrined in international human rights standards. But all over the world, people are persecuted by the state, community elders, their own families for making these decisions, or prevented from making them in the first place. MY BODY = MY RIGHTS Millions of people are impacted by this type of human rights violation: it is endemic across the world.To address this Amnesty International launched My Body, My Rights, a global campaign to end thecontrol and criminalization of sexuality and reproduction. We are working towards tangible change in each of the following five regions, where there are real opportunities to address human rights violations In El Salvador, where women can beaccused of having an illegal abortionand jailed because they miscarried, we are working with partnersto challenge violence againstwomen and girls,arguing that the total banon abortion is itself a form of state violence against them. In Algeria, Morocco, and Tunisia,we are campaigning to reform laws that allow rapists to avoid prosecution by marrying theirvictims victims like 16-year-old Amina Filali who killed herself in March 2012 after being coerced into marrying the man shesaid had raped her In Burkina Faso, where medical workers can deny women contraceptives unless they have their husbands permission, we are campaigning to remove discriminatory attitudes and financial barriers that block women and girls access to contraception and family planning. In Nepal, we are campaigning to end gender discrimination which has led to a high prevalence of uterine prolapse, a debilitating yet preventable medical condition In Ireland, where abortion is illegal unless there is a real and substantial risk to the life of the woman,we will work with partners to consolidate public and politicalsupport for the decriminalization of abortion in the country High Consensual sex is never a crime whatever our sex, sexuality, gender identity or marital status. Seeking an abortion or helping someone get one does NOT make us criminals.. We all have the right to live free from all forms of violence, including rape We have the right to have a say in the laws, policies and programmes that affect our bodies and our lives. Affordable, confidential and quality health services, including access to contraception, is not a luxury its a human right. Education and information on sex and relationships must be based on scientific evidence, and should be available to everyone. We would like you to endorse the My Body, My Rights by signing and promoting the My Body My Rights manifesto. With sevenkey calls, the manifesto will tell the world that sexual and reproductive rights are human rights, and must not be denied. MY BODY MY RIGHTS MANIFESTO If our sexual and reproductive choices are denied, we have the right to report it, have it investigated and be confident that justice will be served.
