Approximately 25 million unsafe abortions occur a year, of which most occur in the developing world.
The My Choice Bracelet represents your commitment to helping every woman have access to have the right to birth control; freedom from coerced sterilization and contraception; the right to access quality reproductive healthcare; and the right to education and access in order to make free and informed reproductive choices.
Every bracelet donates $5 to WCG, a woman-led organization, dedicated to ensuring that women around the world, regardless of location or socio-economic status have access to reproductive health solutions. Together, we help support their commitment to creating a world where all women's reproductive rights are respected and protected. Heping women direct their own lives and make healthy physical, mental, and emotionally decisions for themselves.
Cause Bracelets are not just cute colored bracelets. We believe in clearly displaying to the world what you stand for in order to create a space for positive, nonaggressive conversation helping other people ask themselves, “well what can I, my friends and family do to help solve this issue?” We've seen it time and time again, someone will ask, “where’d you get that bracelet? What is it for?” BOOM you have a creative opening to raise awareness.
This is why we have created a brand that clearly and proudly represents important causes all over the world!
About 25 million unsafe abortions occur a year, of which most occur in the developing world. Unsafe abortions lead to an estimated 7 million complications. The majority of unsafe abortions, or 97%, occurred in developing countries in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.
“When women and girls cannot access effective contraception and safe abortion services, there are serious consequences for their own health and that of their families. This should not happen. But despite recent advances in technology and evidence, too many unsafe abortions still occur, and too many women continue to suffer and die.” ~ Dr. Bela Ganatra
Did you know?
214 million women of reproductive age have an unmet need for modern contraception.
79% of unintended pregnancies in the developing world are because of contraceptive non-use or use of traditional methods.
If women received the contraception they wanted, unplanned pregnancies would drop by 70%.
Only 13 states require that sex education be medically accurate.
Each year, up to 13% of maternal deaths globally can be attributed to unsafe abortion.
30% of all medicines sold in Africa are counterfeit.
Together we CAN make a difference. We can do what matters. Health care is key to a woman’s well-being and economic stability.
This is why we have released the My Choice bracelet in support of WCG to highlight the need to do everything we can to empower, educate and enable women and girls to make informed choices and access critical reproductive health products and services.
Every bracelet purchased donates $5 which helps introduce and create access to new contraceptive methods around the world. The My Choice Bracelet helps us support WCG’s mission to create options for women when it comes to their reproductive health — no matter where they live.
Our goal is that more supportive conversations will be had about women's reproductive health and you wearing this bracelet encourages such.
