Feminist networks supporting abortion access across Latin America

SAAF grantee partner Las Comadres, which supports abortion access in Ecuador, is featured in Rolling Stone (en español).

Las Comadres is credited with initiating a collaborative network of organisations across the region providing abortion accompaniment:

The Companion Network is made up of a group of organizations and groups that support safe and caring abortions. For now there are 21 groups and they are in 15 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean. In 2022, they reached more than 48,024 people in their abortion processes in a safe, careful and feminist manner. Together they have been able to talk about better forms of organization, management of complex cases and data, to defense strategies against possible risks of criminalization.
