Book - 1995
Rate this:
The Right to Know explores the crucial role of information in enabling women to protect their own health and the health of their families. Chapters on various countries expose the ways governments around the world censor, manipulate, and fail to provide information about abortion, contraception, AIDS, and other threats to reproductive health, and examine the role of religion, culture, and foreign aid programs in restricting information. Placing these practices in the context of international human rights law, the book identifies government obligations to respect women's right of access to information and lays out how these obligations can be applied in practice to protect women's health and reproductive choice.
