Women in Europe are still dying because doctors refuse to perform abortions. Caroline Hickson explains why moral concerns should not stand in the way of the primary goal of any healthcare system, to care for and protect its patients by providing quality care for all.
EU institutions should be emboldened to take concrete actions to defend reproductive freedom across the whole of Europe after Irish citizens voted massively in favour of repealing the country’s abortion ban, writes Caroline Hickson.
It is hard to believe that in 2016, we are still fighting for a woman’s right to bodily autonomy, but the unfortunate truth is that the situation for women across much of Europe has stagnated, or even worsened, writes Caroline Hickson.
It would have been hard to miss the recent furore caused by Donald Trump’s flip-flopping around on the Republican abortion bandwagon. But frankly, what worries me much more is what is happening here in Europe, writes Caroline Hickson.
