Kampen för aborträtten - strategier i en utmanande kontext

Aborträtten hotas från ett flertal olika håll. Vilka är de främsta strategierna och tillvägagångssätten för att stå upp för aborträtten i utmanande kontexter? Hur går det att arbeta för abortfrågan i konservativa miljöer där kyrkan har stort inflytande? Hur arbetar aktivister med frågan i restriktiva länder som Malta och Irland?

Obs! Samtalet sker på engelska.

What is it like to be pro-choice in conservative environments largely influenced by the church? What approaches does activists who fight for abortion rights in restrictive countries such as Malta and Ireland choose?
