This grant will support Grupo de Información en Reproducción Elegida (GIRE)’s third edition of the Report on Reproductive Rights in Mexico, a biannual report that promotes women’s access to and exercise of reproductive rights by strengthening transparency and accountability. The report will continue to analyze information regarding the Mexican government’s compliance with national and international human rights standards, focusing on six reproductive rights: safe and legal abortion, contraception, maternal mortality, obstetric violence, work and family life, and assisted reproduction. In addition, GIRE will develop a more specific and in-depth report on access to legal abortion in the case of rape of teenagers.
