Reproductive Rights are Human Rights, and yet with the overturning of Roe Vs Wade in the USA, we have seen that this is not something to take for granted.

About 1 in 5 Australian women have an abortion. That means you may have, your colleagues will have, someone in your family probably has...it is one of the commonest types of gynaecological procedures in Australia with about 80,000 abortions happening each year.

Facilitator: Suzanne Belton PhD.

Suzanne is an adjunct Associate Professor at the Menzies School of Health Research and has worked as a lecturer and researcher with Charles Darwin University, Flinders University and the Centre for Remote Health. She is a nurse, midwife and medical anthropologist with 80 peer reviewed publications.

She collaborates in the Get Cliterate! Anatomical Models project with medical doctors and a 3D model designer. She educates health professionals about female anatomy and sexual pleasure.

Suzanne will provide stories and case studies which illustrate the health benefits of abortion. She will use examples from Australia and other countries to demonstrate the social and political aspects of abortion. She draws on her own research set in SE Asia and Australia as well as other evidence.
