Asia Safe Abortion Partnership (ASAP) is a regional network of organizations across 15 countries in the Asia-Pacific region and the Middle East which promotes, protects and advances women’s rights by advocating for improved access to safe abortion services.

Unplanned pregnancies are not uncommon. Unfortunately, not all women who want to terminate such a pregnancy have access to safe and legal abortion. This video shows the various social and legal barriers that women seeking abortion in Asia face. It shows why safe and legal abortion is a right, and why the lack of safe abortion services is both a public health and human rights issue.
