On September 28, 2014 let's take over the Twitterverse in our Tweet-a-thon!

Tweet and/or retweet at least every hour, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. your local time, about access to safe and legal abortion and #AbortionStigma.

You can also tweet photos of your local September 28 action or of your selfies completing the phrase "I'm speaking out against #abortionstigma because....".

Make sure to include the hashtags #Sept28 and #AbortionStigma! For tweets in Spanish, please use hashtags #28septiembre and #AbortoSinPrejuicios.

Encourage your friends to participate, and be sure to follow members of the International Campaign for Women's Right to Safe Abortion!

Access to Safe & Legal Abortion NOW!

September 28 Global Day of Action for Access to Safe and Legal Abortion forms part of the campaign activities undertaken by  International Campaign for Women's Right to Safe Abortion, that aims to build an international movement to promote universal access to safe, legal abortion as a women's health and human rights issue. As part of the International Campaign Advisory Group, WGNRR leads the coordination of September 28 annual campaigning activities, conducted by Campaign and WGNRR members, as well as allies around the world. September 28 has been a regional campaign for decriminalisation of abortion in Latin America and Caribbean for nearly twenty years before being taken on by SRHR activists all over the world as a Global Day of Action for Access to Safe and Legal Abortion in 2011.
