On International Women’s Day:  CHOOSE CHOICE!

At MSI, we encounter amazing women every day. 

Today we celebrate the midwives, nurses, doctors and other healthcare providers who overcome ever increasing levels of opposition and obstacles in the daily performance of their jobs.

We applaud our clients who bravely spurn traditions and social pressures to take control of their bodies and do what’s right for them and their futures.

We stand in solidarity with the millions of women around the world who take to the streets to march so that their voices can be heard.

And, we say thank you to all the generous women who CHOOSE CHOICE and support the rights of women everywhere to decide for themselves if and when to have a child.

Every one of you is an inspiration to us and thousands of others.
On this International Women’s Day, we salute you all!  

“Every girl should have the right to control her own body.”

“Educating girls educates the world.”

“Women’s reproductive health and education worldwide is one of the most critical issues we face today.”

“When women can make their own life choices, the whole planet will be better for it.”
