The u. S. Legal program strives to protect and advance reproductive liberty and access to reproductive health care in the united states by employing diverse strategies grounded in the center's legal expertise. The legal victories of the u. S. Legal program, including two landmark u. S. Supreme court decisions, have protected millions of women's health and every american's constitutional rights. It has secured medicaid funding for low income women seeking abortions; safeguarded confidential reproductive healthcare services for adolescents, ensured that women receive medically sound and unbiased information, and protected medical privacy.
the global legal program strengthens reproductive health laws and policies in more than 50 countries in asia, africa, europe, and latin america and the caribbean as well as in the united nations. In the past decade, the center has spearheaded the use of international litigation and complementary legal advocacy with great success, winning landmark victories in human rights fora, including various decisions that hold governments accountable for ensuring access to abortion services where they are legal.
the communications program informs a wide range of external audiences on the center's activities and impact, developing and implementing messages that promote the organization's overall mission and goals. It works with the u. S. , global, and government relations programs to publicize new cases and reports, legal victories, and advocacy efforts through the media, as well as the center's own web properties and publications and develops and executes major national and international public awareness and advocacy campaigns.
the center's government relations program works with congress and the executive branch to protect and promote reproductive rights and health. It advocates for domestic and foreign policy that advances reproductive health and freedom and allows women and families to prosper.
