Stencil art on the streets of Yogyakarta to voice rights to safe abortion for women in Indonesia. This photo was taken in September 2013.

During  abortion, women are put in difficult situations and the procedure is done without any safety and health standard methods, and they do not take into consideration risks to women’s health. We should know that a woman’s life could be in danger when experiencing unwanted pregnancy without access to safe abortion and legal abortion. Back alley abortions are dirty, life threatening, and dangerous!
