The abortion scare is truly just a scare. The religious right would use all kinds of scare tactics and disinformation by claiming that contraceptives are abortifacients and that the reproductive health care bill (RH bill) promotes abortion. They have long been using these arguments in public fora and debates. Both these two arguments of the religious right are, of course, untrue. Their arguments are not based on medical science and factual content of the RH bill which, in truth, does not allow a single ground for safe and legal abortion.

History repeats itself: Abortion Pills and information on the waves in Africa and in Asia. Ten years later after the creation of the women on Waves’ Mobile Clinic, which provides information and services for safe and legal abortion in international waters where local laws do not apply, history repeats itself in Africa and Asia.

Quezon City, August 2, 2010 –“Filipinos should address the issue of access to safe and legal abortion in the country.  The impact of lack of access to safe and legal abortion is a grave public health issue as shown in the report of New York-based Center for Reproductive Rights entitled, “Forsaken Lives: The Harmful Impact of the Philippine Criminal Abortion Ban”, which was released today at Annabel’s restaurant.   In the Philippines, over half of all pregnancies are unintended and one-third of these unintended pregnancies end in abortion.  Due to the illegality of abortion, Filipino women induce abortion clandestinely through unsafe methods.

Wednesday, July 21st 2010 Lots of sessions and activities to attend today! An extremely busy day, it involved a lot of running between session rooms and to & fro from the global village and back! Today's speakers mainly focused on the key issues and barriers to universal access to ARVs.

Friday, July 16th 2010: last day of the youth pre-conference. Today, the energy was infectious and incredibly high! Everybody is exhausted- but really enthused and excited by the past three days, the learning and the committments made by us to each other. It also helps that there's a youth pre-conference PARTY to look forward to tonight!
