Last Tuesday, Samira debated at France 24 with her Maltese colleague Alfred Sant about access to safe and legal abortion. Truly unimaginable that we still have to debate this in 2022. Abortion is a human right. Women should be able to decide for themselves about their own body, that is non-negotiable!

The abolition of this right in the US showed us all how vulnerable our hard-won victories over sexual and reproductive rights are. We must strengthen and continue to protect these rights. Because we can’t take them for granted when there are anti-gender movements trying to take them away.

According to Samira, what should be done to protect this right in Europe? A few points:

  1. Include the right to safe and legal abortion in the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights.
  2. More funding for the defense of women’s rights Ban anti-abortion movements from the European Parliament.
  3. Decriminalizing abortion in Europe
  4. Reform the right of veto in the EU so that member states such as Poland and Hungary can no longer block treaty changes.

Finally. There are many of us, and we therefore have an important duty towards women: to protect and guarantee their physical autonomy. There must always be a real choice! Masters of our own belly.
