Oral Statement by Ipas
at the 45th Session of the Commission of Population and Development on the theme:
Adolescents and youth
My name is Cecilia Espinoza, I am from Nicaragua and I am speaking on behalf of Ipas, an international NGO working with local, national and global partners to ensure that women can obtain safe, respectful and comprehensive abortion care, including counseling and contraception to prevent future unintended pregnancies. Young women especially are often seriously harmed by the lack of such care. I would like to tell you about one of them today.
