Two civil society organisations championing women rights put up a brave fight to compel the government to put in place guidelines for safe abortions.
Federation of Women Lawyers (FIDA-Kenya) and the Centre for Reproductive Rights (CRR) argued that their petition was not about legalising abortion but fighting for the right of women with unwanted pregnancies and who have a right to life and to procure safe, legal abortion services.
