On International Sexual and Reproductive Rights Day, the Justice Studies Center of the Americas (JSCA) affirms the importance of recognizing and protecting these rights in every country in the Americas without exception. We believe that the violation of these rights affects individuals’ dignity and health, particularly that of all women who face restrictions on access to information and the full exercise of their freedoms. This is a day for making statements about and reflecting on our justice systems and their legislation and practices. It is also a day for remembering that our work must be based on efforts to promote a more just region in order to benefit all people.

We at JSCA form part of the commitment made by the countries and agencies of the international community. This text highlights the main legal frameworks and instruments.
