Catholics for the Right to Decide
Católicas por el Derecho a Decidir (CDD-Argentina, or “Catholics for the Right to Decide”) is an independent movement of Catholic people committed to social justice and women’s rights, including sexual and reproductive rights, and the right to live free from violence and discrimination. CDD-Argentina works towards achieving gender equality, and challenges religious fundamentalism from a theological and feminist perspective.
CDD-Argentina has played a leading role in mobilizing communities to demand access to safe and legal abortion in the country. As part of these efforts, the group helped launch La Campaña Nacional por el Derecho al Aborto Legal, Seguro y Gratuito (the National Campaign for the Right to Legal, Safe and Free Abortion), and works with other organizations to monitor abortion services. CDD-Argentina has also helped train more than 550 health professionals on sexual and reproductive health and rights issues through its partnerships with universities.See more
