Pro-choice morsels (6 Jan)

6 Jan

A few quick links from the end of 2011 and the start of 2012.

Gill Greer, former executive director of NZ Family Planning was made a Commander of the British Empire (CBE) in the British New Year’s Honours List, for her work in the area of sexual health for women and girls around the world.

Abortion pioneer Merle Hoffman talks to Salon about her recently published memoir Intimate Wars.

Sunsara Taylor answers the question ‘Should a woman feel sad about her abortion?’ with a resolute ‘No’.

Amanda Marcotte at RH Reality Check discusses the war on contraception that escalated in the US in 2011.

IPAS have been busy raising awareness about sexual and reproductive rights as fundamental human rights across Latin America.

Still in Latin America, abortion up to 12 weeks is set to be decriminalised in Uruguay!

And, coming up soon:

January 22 is the seventh annual Blog for Choice Day in the US. On this day (the anniversary of Roe v. Wade), pro-choice bloggers and activists from around the US will write blog posts responding to this year’s question: “What will you do to help elect pro-choice candidates in 2012?” There will definitely be some good reading in there, and we will link to the list of bloggers participating on the day.

Have any other pro-choice news or articles you want to share? Post a comment, or email us if you have something you think would be good for our next ‘Pro-choice morsels’.
