Reproductive Rights/Body Image

Reproductive rights are the legal rights provided (or not provided) relating to reproductive health. Reproductive rights span over several issues, from contraceptive accessibility, to HIV/AIDS treatment, the right to a legal and safe abortion, female genital mutilation, to education and access to positive reproductive education. Unfortunately, even the most developed of countries are falling short when it comes to reproductive rights. In 2014, the United States Supreme Court ruled in favor of Hobby Lobby allowing businesses to use religious freedom as a reason to not cover contraceptive methods in their insurance schemes. Female genital mutilation (FGM) affects women in 27 of the world's countries.
