This Editorial supports SDG 3 and 10 by highlighting the inequalities across the world in access to safe and legal abortion care. 45% of abortions globally are estimated to be unsafe, and in many countries abortion is illegal or faces legal constraints. The article also describes groups who face particular barriers to abortion, and emphasises the need for health-care systems to provide safe, universally accessible abortion care.
