Slovakia has risen, “my body, my choice”, they refer to Záborská. The Czechs also joined the protests
Parliament will renegotiate the interruptions. The bill to help pregnant women came to second reading. Although Záborská’s “changer” gained favor with the larger deputies of the National Council of the Slovak Republic, he provoked a wave of criticism in society. The day before the beginning of the 48th meeting, at which reproductive (in) rights are to be discussed again, Bratislava, Trnava, Košice, Banská Bystrica, Brno and Prague opposed this.
At the beginning of October, a group of deputies of the National Council of the Slovak Republic submitted a bill on assistance to pregnant women.
“Discussion about support pregnant women in leads already long time, beer until today in her in legal management did not pay attention sufficient attention. The goal proposed adjustments is a product supportive measures for a woman, which is considering submission applications about artificial ending to heal. Adjustment has give women real possibility the end in after consideration all available Information and options how direct your life responsibly,“They said in the explanatory memorandum.
There is no help as help or how we go back to the Middle Ages
The bill, in addition to financial rewards and allowances, contains several entities that make it difficult for Slovaks to access the suspension of the intervention.
For example, a group of MEPs wants to ban advertising interruptions altogether. “Forbids in advertising on the need or access artificial termination to heal, on the services or goods which are offered for the purpose of performing an artificial cessation of treatment,“It is stated in the official text materials.
The most controversial point is the extension of the waiting period before performing the procedure. Layman requires – the woman’s “time to think” is extended from 48 to 96 hours. “if it doesn’t work about common threat health or of life women, artificial ending to heal in can drug at the earliest after take deadlines 96 hours from sending reports about to provide Information according to paragraph,“MEPs are proposing.
The bill won the sympathy of the majority of deputies – on October 6, it was moved to the 2nd reading by a vote. 75 out of 130 deputies present voted in favor.
Welcome to Slovakistan
However, the mood in society is completely different from that in parliament. After the law is approved, many votes will be heard that do not agree with the proposal.
“Restrictions on reproductive rights endanger the health, happiness, future and lives of (especially) women, and do not contribute to reducing the number of interruptions. However, a lower number of interruptions should not be why our main goal. We want fewer unwanted pregnancies, we want women not to be forced into violent relationships during pregnancy, and we want the birth of a child not to push the poverty line for anyone.
We can help to do this by introducing quality sensitive and inclusive sex education, paying contraception from health insurance and improving maternity and post-natal health care, or by improving living conditions for women, people from ethnic, sexual and other minor backgrounds, and the family., “Informs We will not be silent.
The professional public also opposed it
Experts also commented on the topics. They do not agree with the proposal, which is popularized especially by Anna Záborská (Christian Union). According to TASR, doctors, doctors, nurses, midwives and other professional and medical staff have expressed concern about the parliamentary proposal.
They sent an open list to Members. “By letter, we ask Members not to need the proposal as it stands. As medical staff, we express our sincere support for all efforts to improve health and social care for pregnant women. However, the current wording of the bill exacerbates the situation of women and ties our hands in the provision of health care in accordance with best practice. ” in short, public care was interpreted by pediatrician Tatiana Speváková.
Deputies around Anna Záborská are going against the flow again – while more and more countries are thinking about how to follow the interruption in a more gentle way, there is a discussion in Slovakia about banning advertising or extending the waiting period.
“I learned in committee that we are already violating international agreements. This is exacerbated by this proposal by Anna Záborská and her team. International agreements recommend that we abolish normal life and encourage us to raise awareness. This bill is quite the opposite,“Jana Bittó Cigániková (SaS) announced today.
Even in the 21st century, women must insist on their right
Although more and more people are objecting to the tightening of abortions, MEPs seem to be ignoring them. Therefore, even today, women in Slovakia and the Czech Republic have pointed out that “can’t be quiet“And we have to take care of the protests in the square of several bigger cities.
“We will not be silent,“”Anna, give us a break“,”My body, my choice“It was heard through the streets of Bratislava. The number of protesters was high, with a few thousand people. The protest in Bratislava began on SNP Square, later the participants moved before the National Council of the Slovak Republic. Their march ended right at the place where the proposal will be decided in the coming days.
It was not only protested in Bratislava, it also supported the march for breaking the law in Trnava, Košice and Banská Bystrica. The bill did not leave people cold in the Czech Republic either.
Around half past seven in the evening, the square in Brno was filled with varechs – they symbolized one thing – the struggle for reproductive justice. Organizers even start for those who warn you have not brought a replacement. “During several speeches, it was mentioned several times that the situation in Slovakia may repeat itself in the Czech Republic after last week’s elections,“Informs the protester.
