Reproductive health is affected by a multifaceted web of factors. Reproductive health rights embrace human rights that are already recognized in national and international human rights documents. Denying of reproductive health rights encompasses the problems of HIV and STDs/STIs, unintended pregnancy and abortion and infertility. The present study was planned to seek the relationship between the reproductive health security and married women's attitude towards the practice of reproductive health rights. For this purpose 700 married women having at least one child were selected through multi stage sampling technique. A well structure interviewing schedule was used for data collection. Bi-variate analysis was carried out by using SPSS-15.0 and it was found that as the respondents' perception became positive towards the adoption and practice of RH-security services their attitude became more consistent towards the practice of RHR.
