Reproductive Rights and Privacy Project

The Reproductive Rights and Privacy Project is focused on researching and exposing organisations that collect and exploit the information of those seeking to exercise their reproductive rights. Working with others, PI advocates against such data exploitation.

The right to privacy is one of the precedents used to establish reproductive rights, and it is established by several international and regional legal instruments. The primary link between the two stems from the fact that laws and policies which impede upon individuals’ rights to access sexual and reproductive health services may also interfere with individuals’ right to privacy and to make autonomous decisions as it pertains to their health and fertility. Such reproductive rights are necessary for bodily autonomy.
