28 September is International Safe Abortion Day. The day was first celebrated as a day of action for decriminalization of abortion in Latin America and the Caribbean in 1990 by the Campaña 28 Septiembre. In 2011, the Women's Global Network for Reproductive Rights declared 28 September as an international day.

In Europe,  and around the world,  women must have access to safe and legal abortion.
