The Center for Reproductive Rights, located in New York City, is a non-profit legal advocacy organization dedicated to promoting and defending women's reproductive rights worldwide. We are the only group of human rights lawyers focused exclusively on reproductive rights.
Founded in 1992, the Center has defined the course of reproductive rights law in the United States with significant victories in courts across the country including two landmark cases in the U.S. Supreme Court. Using international human rights law to advance women's reproductive freedom, the Center has strengthened reproductive health laws and policies around the globe by working with more than 50 organizations in 44 nations including countries in Africa, Asia, East Central Europe, and Latin America and the Caribbean.
