Rocket & Space team would like to congratulate Marie Stopes International for providing women with choice for 40 years. Marie Stopes International exists – above all else – to help women have children by choice, not chance. And we do this specifically by providing high quality contraception and safe abortion services in the countries around the world where we work.
For many young people, not being able to choose or control when they have children can throw their plans off course. For others, it can be a matter of life or death. By helping a young girl plan when she has children, Marie Stopes has been giving her the freedom to pursue hopes and dreams that can transform her life. Whether that’s gaining an education, raising a family or going to work, having that choice can be genuinely transformative.
Marie Stopes International: “Wherever we work, we put the needs of our clients first – and make sure that every woman we see receives the same warm welcome, without judgement. Our skilled local teams care for each woman as if she were one of our own family. And our teams expertly and clearly explain the medical facts and also appreciate the emotional factors that can come into play when women need to make such important life choices.”
In just four decades, Marie Stopes International have touched the lives of more than 120 million women and girls, giving them the power to take control of their futures and have children by choice, not chance. Today, more than 21 million people worldwide are using a method of contraception provided by us. Right now, women and girls in 37 countries are using the services so that they can have the life that they want, whether that means completing their studies, starting a career, or providing better care for their families.
Rockets & Space is proud to be part of Marie Stopes International. We would like to congratulate the whole team for its 40th Anniversary.
