Gender equality isn’t possible without abortion and contraception

A new report has suggested that gender equality cannot be achieved without access to safe and legal abortion and contraception. The report, released by the non-profit organization Women’s Rights Without Frontiers, argues that restrictions on abortion and contraception limit women’s ability to control their own bodies and reproductive choices.

The report highlights the fact that in many countries, women are still denied access to basic reproductive healthcare, which can have devastating consequences for their health and well-being. According to the report, an estimated 35 million women worldwide seek unsafe abortions every year, and tens of thousands of women die as a result.

The report argues that access to safe and legal abortion and contraception is essential for gender equality, as it allows women to make informed decisions about their own bodies and lives. Without these choices, women are often forced to rely on men for support, which can limit their ability to pursue education, careers, and other opportunities.

The report also notes that abortion and contraception are often stigmatized and politicized, with many governments and religious groups opposing their use. This can make it difficult for women to access the care they need, and can also lead to discrimination and violence against those who seek these services.

The report concludes by calling for greater access to safe and legal abortion and contraception, and for an end to the stigmatization and politicization of these vital healthcare services. It also emphasizes the need for governments to take action to protect women’s rights, including their right to access healthcare and make their own reproductive choices.

The report has been welcomed by women’s rights groups around the world, who have long been advocating for greater access to abortion and contraception. Many hope that the report will help to raise awareness of the importance of these issues, and lead to greater support for women’s rights and gender equality.
