Conditions prevailing in humanitarian crises often create a coercive environment for women. Material and security needs and pre-exisiting inequalities render women particularly vulnerable to social and contextual coercion in such situations, which can often result in unwanted pregnancies. Some women may resort to unsafe abortions, sometimes resulting in death. Currently, abortion services provided by humanitarian agencies are either unavailable or fail to meet the real need in humanitarian settings. Accessible family planning, contraceptives, and early remedies should all be available, along with counselling. In addition, a pro-choice approach and accompanying abortion services should be a fundamental pillar of health services available to women in emergencies.
