(en) France, Alternative Libertaire Tract AL, My body, my choice, for all women, all over Europe (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

The International Day for the Right to Abortion is on 28 September. The slogan of this
year is to launch a European mobilization for the inscription of this right as well as the
right of women to freely dispose of their bodies in European legislation. ---- My body, my
choice, for all women, all over Europe ! ---- The International Day for the Right to
Abortion is on 28 September. The slogan of this year is to launch a European mobilization
for the inscription of this right as well as the right of women to freely dispose of their
bodies in European legislation. ---- Faced with disparate situations in Europe:
solidarity! ---- While the European Union claims to defend the rights of " man, " the
right to abortion is still not guaranteed, sometimes in disregard of women's lives. It is
severely restricted in Poland, Cyprus, Andorra and Ireland (women only have access to it
in case of danger to the mother, sometimes in case of rape or malformation of the fetus),
and it is totally forbidden in Malta.
With the development of reactionary parties in the various branches of power, this right
is often attacked and questioned where it is recognized. Retrograde and religious forces
use powerful lobbies to limit or prohibit it.
But every year around the world, an estimated 47,000 women die from clandestine abortions.
However, remember that abortion must be a right AND a choice. The forced sterilization of
Roma women in Slovakia and Hungary also involves violence and mutilation. In both
directions, women's bodies are a battlefield. It is up to us to recover our rights !
In the face of these situations, we must be supportive of each other and demand a free,
free and accessible abortion right for all.
Austerity and abortion: women have to drink
In France, austerity measures lead to closures of abortion centers, decreases in subsidies
to associations, and hence reduced access to abortion. Without a means, the law is not real.
What is the legitimacy of the European Union on such a subject ? Recall that by strongly
encouraging the austerity policies of its member states, it is today an instrument of the
capitalists. Women's rights always come last when it comes to increasing profits. It is
not up to the elected officials to decide our lives, but to each woman to make the choices
that suit her !
Against the control of our bodies: it is in the street that we must fight !
If the petition and a letter are to be handed to the European deputies on 28 September in
Brussels, Alternative Libertaire thinks that it is above all in the street that the
mobilization must be strong. In Spain in 2013 and in Poland in 2016, women have fought in
the streets to guarantee their rights. We have no illusions as to what the next European
elections will bring in 2019. There is only one sweeping movement that could make an
intrinsically anti-democratic institution, constructed not in the interests of but to
promote the enrichment of the capitalists.
