Numerous attempts have been made to reform Thailand’s restrictive abortion laws. Andrea Whittaker outlines key organizations and institutions involved in reform advocacy and reviews current strategies and prospects for change. Current advocacy networks are active and increasingly effective at lobbying for reform and present an alternate model of advocacy within a conservative political climate. She finds that the push for reform has been argued on public health grounds, but most recently the notion of reproductive rights is being used to argue for the links between the abortion issue and broader health and social issues facing women.
