Women all over the world are fighting for their rights when it comes to their bodies and their reproductive freedoms. While some countries give women autonomy over their own bodies, others definitely do not and even others are looking to take their rights away.
What does a world with reproductive freedom look like? What sorts of things are going on and how does it affect the society and world that they live in? Here are some of the things that I’ve seen happen when a country offers reproductive freedom for women.
Women Can Make Their Own Choices
This is, probably, one of the most important parts of this whole thing. In many places, women are unable to make their own choices about much of anything, including reproductive freedom. So, in places where reproductive freedom is considered a right for women, they are often in a position where they can be themselves and they can make choices about many areas of their lives, not just reproduction.
Unwanted Pregnancies Actually Decrease
Reproductive rights usually go hand in hand with more access to birth control and other preventative techniques that are related to pregnancy. So, as those rights increase and women have more say over whether or not they will have a child, it actually becomes a lot less likely for unwanted pregnancies to happen, which can lead to a lot of other positive things for children in the long run, too.
Stronger Economic Standing for Women
Empowering women is something that benefits everyone, and one of the big ways that this happens is economically. If women are not being forced to follow through with pregnancies and have the opportunity to prevent them, then they are in a better position to be able to contribute to society in other ways. Economically is one of the big ways that this happens – if they have the opportunity to go ahead and work the jobs that they are interested in and start moving ahead in their careers, it helps with their economic standing. It can also be beneficial for companies that they work for, and for new businesses and such too.
Healthier Relationships Between Men and Women
Men and women do a lot better when women are more than their ability to reproduce. They get along a lot better and it’s that much easier for them to communicate and live out their best lives. Relationships do much better and women feel more confident and able to work alongside of men, instead of feeling like they are against men in every way possible. This can be huge for the way our societies work and how we move forward in society, too.
All of these things are so important, which is why I feel that reproductive freedoms are something that we need to continue fighting and pushing for, no matter how difficult that it may be for us to try and do so. There are many different ways in which you can get the resources that you need and
