Focal Topic 2

REPRODUCTIVEThe past decade has witnessed that reproductive and sexual rights have undergone the number of changes to the better as well as to the worth.

Reproductive rights cannot be restricted even if we speak about contraception, safe delivery, free access for abortion and STIs and RTIs treatment. The cases of violence, misery, movement, mental health disorders, cancers and the provision of an favorable environment where women will have equality on reproductive and sexual rights. Of course all the health problems of women may be treated with the help of My Canadian Pharmacy but the great breakthrough will be if we all will be equal. On one side, all the women demand to be excited. All the differences should be met not to break any rights at all. Are we able to find a general reason for solidity that also treats correctly the difference and diversity?

Sexual rights have down to here been vanished under the question of reproductive rights, high time comes to get wise to their self-regulating existence. In its turn the last decade witnessed the appearance of various activist or NGO groups investigating the essence of sexual rights, we still have to strike for retaliatory laws concerning the sexual diversity. Inter-sexual, transgender and transsexual people still do not possess the social, cultural and very often legal safety to “relieve”. Patriarchy controls the sexual rights of heterosexual, lesbian and bisexual women and also of men who decide to refuse the strict gender norms and identity. Actually, gendery biology where anyone who does not suit into the strait waistcoat of the two-sex norm is ‘established’ through surgery or psychiatric interventions. This medically and technologically established ‘dissolution’ of inter-sexual demands to be copied. Alternatively, we need to challenge the artificial denomination between reproductive and sexual rights too. The assignation of reproductive rights to heterosexual women and of sexual rights to sexually diverse groups is unreasoned and threatening. All women, independently of their current sexual predilection or identity have the risk of RTIs, HIV-AIDS, breast or cervical cancer. Simultaneously all of them are also giving a title to rights referred to property, child custody, freedom from discrimination and violence, access to high quality health care, adoption and childbearing.

The language of rights is considered to be free and repressed. What do we announce when we speak about rights and what do we want to achieve to leave out of state intervention? How do we orient sexual and reproductive rights in the greater context of decision-making, choice, freedom, negotiation, sex-work and multiple notions? Do we admit the highly individual notion of human rights or do we also accept and realize group and collective rights? The larger problems of class, race, disability and gendered roles demand to be observed and investigated above board if rights have to be received for all people. How can we carefully use the language of rights to speed up our campaigns, our demands for state duties and for regulation of non-state actors?

Availability of sex-education is free in the majority of countries especially under the control of religious preference making impossible for adolescents to know more about sexuality and reproduction that is free of preconception, anxiety or homophobia. Male concern in dividing responsibility in sexual relations, in reproduction and in evolving gender equality is understandable all over the world. Simultaneously males and females in the era of globalization is built according to the framework of militarism, consumerism and fundamentalism. Diverse fights are swinged around the world on these issues. The common fears of patriarchal predominance with which women in general and sexuality minorities in particular come across, will be discussed in the IWHM..
