  • Iran debates new birth control restrictions
    for specific jobs International observers have decried the proposed reforms Amnesty International warned that the bill could have devastating consequences for single women or women in abusive relationships A spokeswoman for the Middle East and north Africa said The authorities are promoting a dangerous culture in which women are stripped of key rights and viewed as baby making machines rather than human beings with fundamental rights to make choices about their own bodies and lives The bills reinforce discriminatory stereotypes of women and mark an unprecedented move by the state to interfere in people s personal lives In their zealous quest to project an image of military might and geopolitical strength by attempting to increase birth rates Iran s authorities are trampling all over the fundamental rights of women even the marital bed is not out of bounds But many Iranian politicians believe the legislative changes are vital to address a serious demographic crisis In October 2014 Iran s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei urged Iranians to help increase the country s population which he described as aging If we move forward like this we will be a country of elderly people in a not too distant future Khamenei said according to the semi official Fars news agency Why do some couples prefer to have one or two children Why do men or women avoid having children through different means the Iranian leader wondered MORE ON THESE TOPICS abortion birth control contraception government regulation Iran This article is published by Xavier Symons and BioEdge under a Creative Commons licence You may republish it or translate it free of charge with attribution for non commercial purposes following these guidelines If you teach at a university we ask that your department make a donation Commercial media must contact us for permission and

    all the right to life Colorado s amendment would have included the unborn under the definition of person and child in the state s criminal code North Dakota would have conferred an inalienable right to life at every stage of human development But in Colorado the amendment sank by a margin of 65 to 35 and in North Dakota by 64 to 36 The personhood movement has fought honorably and maintained the standard of the sanctity of life but it is time to switch up the strategy says one of the strategists of the personhood movement Gualberto Garcia Jones However the tactic of pushing personhood was controversial even within the pro life movement Incremental legislative change combined with the growing pro life sentiment among younger voters may prove to be a more workable strategy The battle over abortion rights in the US is far from over MORE ON THESE TOPICS abortion personhood USA This article is published by Michael Cook and BioEdge under a Creative Commons licence You may republish it or translate it free of charge with attribution for non commercial purposes following these guidelines If you teach at a university we ask that your department make a donation

  • BioEdge: Do restrictive abortion laws kill women?
    issue of the Journal of the Chilean Society of Obstetrics and Gynecology PDF in Spanish epidemiologist Elard Koch crunches the statistics and finds that counter intuitively the rate of abortion related mortality has fallen since 1989 Even hospital discharges due to abortion have significantly decreased during the last decade Proof of whether abortion related mortality rises or falls when abortion is banned is a bit more complicated than it might seem In World Health Organisation statistics illegal abortions only represent a fraction of all abortions because these also include spontaneous abortion or ectopic pregnancies According to official data hospital discharges due to complications of abortions suspected to be illegally induced have been dropping at a rate of 2 per year since 2001 There was no decrease in hospital discharges due to other types of abortion such as spontaneous abortion or ectopic pregnancies The high quality of Chilean vital statistics says Elard means these findings are unlikely to be the result of an artefact of the registry system Rather a decrease in hospital discharges due to complications from illegal abortion appears to explain virtually all the reduction in hospital discharges due to any type of abortion in Chile during the last decade The Chilean experience represents a paradox in our times he contends even under a restrictive abortion law maternal health indicators can be significantly improved by other factors including a noteworthy reduction in mortality and morbidity associated to abortion MORE ON THESE TOPICS abortion Chile This article is published by Michael Cook and BioEdge under a Creative Commons licence You may republish it or translate it free of charge with attribution for non commercial purposes following these guidelines If you teach at a university we ask that your department make a donation Commercial media must contact us for permission and
