REPRODUCTIVE FREEDOM

WHY IT MATTERS

“Defined by feminists in the 1970s as a basic human right, it includes the right to abortion and birth control but implies much more. To be realized, reproductive freedom must include not only an [individual's] right to choose childbirth, abortion, sterilization or birth control but also her right to make those choices freely, without pressure from [other] individuals, doctors, governmental or religious authorities.
 
"It is a key issue for [people who bear children], since without it the other freedoms we appear to have, such as the right to education, jobs, and equal pay may prove illusory. Provisions of childcare, medical treatment, and society’s attitude towards children are also involved.”
