Walsh calls for education on sexual and reproductive rights

A Midlands-North-West MEP is calling for discussions on sexual and reproductive rights to be included in education.

European Parliament member Maria Walsh was speaking following a report calling on European Union institutions and member states to ensure equality through access to sexual reproductive health services.

These include access to abortion procedures, cervical cancer screenings and treatment, and adequate maternity leave

The services sought also include access to mental and physical health supports for women with cervical cancer, infertility, and those impacted by death during childbirth.

Maria Walsh says if we are serious about progressing equality for women, we must discuss the provision of sexual and reproductive health rights.
