UN report says all states should provide access to safe abortion, contraception

UN report says all states should provide access to safe abortion, contraception.

From Feministing.com:

Having someone this high up basically say that all UN members states should provide safe abortion and contraception is a big deal, and many women’s health orgs are already hailing this as a huge victory for global sexual and reproductive rights and health.

(Italics mine.)

Are you listening, Ireland? We should be ashamed of ourselves to be a country as developed as we are, with a centre-left government, that still clings to our archaic, Catholic, repressed view of women’s rights.

As an Irishwoman I will never feel like I can be properly equal in society until my right to choose is respected and guaranteed.
