First episode of Ram Kapoor's comeback show 'Zindagi Ke Crossroads' provokes ire of women activists 8.6.2018 DNA: India
Some women's rights groups have alleged that an episode of a TV programme on a private channel has "stigmatised abortion" by showing it in poor light. The first episode of Ram Kapoor 's ' Zindagi Ke Crossroads ' was aired on Wednesday on Sony Entertainment Television, and revolved around the plight of a couple, who got to know that their child would be born with special needs. It was about abortion and sought public opinion on what a woman should do if she was faced with a foetal abnormality during pregnancy, i.e., whether she should go for an abortion or not. Besides, the channel also put up an advertisement of the show in a leading newspaper, which, a rights group alleged, was "insensitive" and "misleading". "It is disheartening to note that a popular Indian media house is using irresponsible provocative content to promote their reality show. Abortion is a legal process and should be dealt between the decision-maker and medical facilities," city-based Advocating Reproductive Choices (ARC) said in a ...

Can't enforce abortion law change in Northern Ireland, says UK top court 7.6.2018 DNA: Recent Columns
Britain's Supreme Court said on Thursday that Northern Ireland's strict abortion law was incompatible with human rights, but also said it did not have the powers to make a formal ruling that the law should be changed. Four out of seven Supreme Court justices who considered the issue found that the socially conservative British province's current law, which bans abortion except when a mother's life is at risk, was incompatible with the European Convention on Human Rights. However, a different group of four justices ruled that the Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission, which had initiated legal proceedings to try and liberalise the law, did not have the right to bring the case. "As such, the court does not have jurisdiction to make a declaration of incompatibility (with human rights law) in this case," the court said in a summary of the decision. The Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission had argued that the law should be changed to allow abortions in cases where pregnancies were as a result of rape ...

Women take abortion pills in Northern Ireland protest 31.5.2018 General News
Abortion rights campaigners swallowed what they said were abortion pills outside a Belfast court on Thursday, as pressure grows to ease Northern Ireland's strict ban on terminating pregnancies. Northern Ireland is the only part of the U.K. in which abortion is illegal in all but exceptional cases. Last week, the neighboring Republic of Ireland voted to remove a constitutional ban on abortions, putting pressure on the north to follow suit. Campaigners used a small robot to distribute pills outside Belfast's Laganside courts complex, before three women flanked by others dressed in "Handmaid's Tale" outfits swallowed the tablets. Police officers seized the pills and robot, and attempted to lead one woman away. They eventually left without detaining her. Protest organizers didn't say whether the women were pregnant, noting that it would be illegal for them to take the pills if they were. They said the robot was being operated from the Netherlands to avoid breaching the law. Eleanor ...

Paraguay to have its first woman president 29.5.2018 General News
Paraguay will have a woman president for the first time in its history, at least temporarily, after outgoing leader Horacio Cartes stepped down ahead of schedule. Vice President Alicia Pucheta, 68, will complete Cartes's mandate after he resigned to become a senator. On August 15, fellow conservative Mario Abdo Benitez, elected in April 22 polls, will begin his five-year term as president of one of Latin America's poorest countries. The parliament is due to confirm Cartes's resignation and proclaim Pucheta as interim president tomorrow. Opposed to the legalization of abortion, Pucheta is from the right-wing Colorado Party, which has been in power in Asuncion for decades. Opposition Senator Desiree Masi said she does not see Pucheta's nomination as an advance for women in Paraguay. "A woman who has shown her complete submission to those in power does not represent us," she said. "One day, a woman will be come to power as she should, through the ballot box." But Lilian Samaniego, a ...
