Women’s Groups Fight for Better Access to Abortion in Thailand

SAAF grantee partner Tamtang Group advocates for the removal of barriers to safe abortion access in Thailand. This article outlines the issues many still face, despite the liberalisation of the law.

Supecha from Tamtang is quoted in the piece:

“If you believe that abortions have become available for all pregnant women who wish to exercise their legal right to an abortion, you are mistaken.”

In just four months earlier this year, Tamtang received over 1000 calls to their abortion helpline. Many people are still not able to access free, safe, abortion care from the state when they need it.
