Important! In Ecuador, abortion is legal in 3 situations:

· If your health is at risk
· If your life is at risk
· If you were a victim of sexual violence and have a mental disability

If you think you’re in one of these three situations and need assistance, contact Surkuna at 0999928032.

Family planning and contraception is a personal decision. Deciding if you will have children and when you will have them is your right.

Remember! ? Public health services in Ecuador are free.

If you have faced discrimination in the health system, contact the Defensoría del Pueblo (Ombudsman’s Office).
