On 21 August 2015, Magu looks out a window of her home. Magu lives in a village of 5.000 inhabitants in the north of Spain with her mother and younger brother. Magu suffered from sexual and physical abuse from her father. After suffering in silence for a long time she finally managed to talk about the abuse two years ago when her teacher noticed something was wrong. Since then she has received support from her school and a psychologist. For a long time Magu considered the school to be the safest place for her and she sought refuge in books. She has always been a good student and still enjoys reading, and dancing, singing and acting. She is determined to not let her experience define her future. Magu has suffered a lot in the past and is in a process of healing. Although she has gone through hardship, she is an adolescents that looks to the future with hope. She has a boyfriend with who she is very happy, she continues her studies and practices her hobbies. Every five minutes a child dies as a result of violence and millions are left unsafe in their homes, schools and communities. The stories of these children are rarely told. Through the EndViolence Youth Letter initiative voices of 18 child survivors of violence from across the world are now being heard. From violent conflict in South Sudan, sexual abuse in Spain, and child trafficking in Pakistan, these powerful testimonies highlight an epidemic of violence that is facing children in every corner of the world. From these testimonies, UNICEF created a joint letter, addressed to world leaders, calling on them to end the widespread abuse and turn written promises into change for children.

Tres expertos en derechos humanos de Naciones Unidas pidieron a todas las naciones del mundo que supriman cualquier tipo de legislación que criminalice y limite el aborto, y que liberen a las mujeres encarceladas por cargos relacionados con la interrupción del embarazo.

Así se manifestaron los relatores especiales por el Día de Acción Global por un aborto legal y seguro, quienes indicaron que es necesario asegurar que todas las mujeres tengan acceso a los servicios de salud, incluyendo la atención sexual y reproductiva, de una manera segura y en consonancia con sus derechos humanos.

Cualquier negación a la obtención de atención médica es discriminatoria y representa una violación de sus garantías fundamentales, añadieron los expertos.

Igualmente, constataron que el aborto no ha de ser un privilegio para las mujeres con mayores recursos económicos sino para todas las que lo necesiten.

Los relatores especiales pidieron que se reconozca a nivel mundial el 28 de septiembre como día oficial de Naciones Unidas para el aborto seguro.

Según datos de la Organización Mundial de la Salud (OMS), entre 2010 y 2014 se produjeron 25 millones de abortos inseguros anualmente, la mayoría de ellos en países en desarrollo de América Latina, África y Asia.
