From Risks to Rights - Realizing States' Obligations to Prevent and Address Maternal Mortality 

During the past several decades, sexual and reproductive rights advocates have transformed the global community's understanding of maternal mortality and morbidity, framing the scores of preventable maternal deaths that occur each day as a clear violation of women's fundamental human rights. This change has resulted from the coordinated efforts of civil society to draw attention to the widespread discrimination in and lack of quality maternal health care around the globe through advocacy before human rights bodies, groundbreaking court cases, strong political declarations, and the incorporation of maternal mortality into development targets.  Through cases like Alyne da Silva Pimentel v. Brazil, the passage of Human Rights Council resolutions, and in the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), the Center for Reproductive Rights and other human rights and reproductive health advocates have convincingly argued that preventable maternal mortality and morbidity is a violation of women's rights to life, health, non-discrimination and equality, and freedom from cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment, among others.
