Abortion in Catalonia - and in the rest of Spain - has been legal since 1985. We have the right to abortion, but access to it is sometimes difficult or precarious, and therefore we wonder whether this is an effective and respected right today. In our country.
We intend to obtain an X-ray of how this right is effectively today in Catalonia, to give a little historical look to the achievement of this right, also to listen to stories located from different points of the territory, and finally to put the situation of Catalonia within its Spanish context and European.
With this discussion we intend to contribute to give social relevance to the issue, and to take the temperature of a right that we Catalans have but; in what conditions do we have it?
We will talk with:

Montse Cervera, Campaign for the right to free abortion of Ca la Dona.
Sílvia Aldavert, political scientist, coordinator of the Association for Sexual and Reproductive Rights.
