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.
