Ep. 13 – The fight for the access to safe abortions in Hungary — Europe Talks Back
Requesting an abortion in Europe is legal in most countries. Yet, even if ending a pregnancy is not banned, accessing this right is not always guaranteed.
While the pro-life narratives spread all over Europe, far-right governments tighten abortion rules. Hungary is the latest example. In this country, from September 15, women can request an abortion only if they listen to the fetus' heartbeat. What is behind this new and cruel decree? On this episode of Europe Talks Back, Marìa Dios interviews Júlia Bakó, a Hungarian Budapest-based feminist women's rights activist, and Mara Clarke, founder of Abortion Support Network, an organisation that helps women all over Europe to access safe abortions.
