The progressive realisation of women’s rights is overriding for any nation that seeks to empower its people. Reproductive healthcare is key when discussing women’s rights. It is a fundamental human right as well as human development issue that states must strive to fulfill completely. This right is provided for expressly in Article 43(1) of the 2010 Constitution of Kenya. The conundrum lies in the fact the Constitution of Kenya as well as other pieces of existing legislation such as the Health Act are not specific to the protection of reproductive healthcare rights.
