Sexual and reproductive rights are fundamental human rights. They are the rights of everyone to make free, informed and responsible decisions and have full control over very basic aspects of one’s private life—one’s body, sexuality, health, relationships, and if, when and with whom to marry and have children—without any form of discrimination, stigma, coercion or violence. This includes rights to enjoy and express one’s sexuality, be free from interference in making personal decisions about sexuality and reproductive matters, and to access sexual and reproductive health information, education and services.
