First posted on the 5th of January 2021. In some, perhaps many ways we may be going backwards not forwards.
Although not the only links between what is happening in the world this map of where abortion is available tells us a lot about women’s rights, equality, sustainability and migration. We can make some generalisations here for the sake of not writing a book on this blog. Many of the countries where women don’t have the right to have an abortion or access to contraception and family planning are also those with a high percentage of very young people and that have large numbers migrating to countries that do have these and where populations are growing at a more sustainable rate. Many countries in Africa for instance have around 50% of their population 18 years old or younger. Clearly no country can deal with this unsustainable growth and in the wider picture any country’s environment can be severely damaged by this level of growth. In the even larger picture of looking over the last two centuries the planet cannot sustain the growth of having gone from around one billion individuals in 1800 to 7.8 billion in 2021. It is therefore as a matter of urgency, as part of climate change, sustainability and reducing the damage done to the environment that we concentrate as a priority the gaining of equality for all women and their control over their own bodies, https://www.statista.com/chart/13680/the-legal-status-of-abortion-worldwide/?utm_source=Statista+Global&utm_campaign=ec3b7da732-All_InfographTicker_daily_COM_AM_KW49_2020_Th_COPY&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_afecd219f5-ec3b7da732-310309078.
