Alerte sur les sites internet anti-avortement - Yahoo Actualités France

Alerte sur les sites internet #anti-avortement - Yahoo Actualités France

Le Haut conseil à l’égalité entre les hommes et les femmes alerte vendredi le gouvernement sur la visibilité croissante de sites internet animés par des organisations anti-avortement qui relayent des informations biaisées sur le sujet.

Pour faire face à cette situation, l’institution, qui doit remettre un rapport sur le sujet à la ministre des droits des femmes, recommande la mise en place d’un site internet institutionnel et d’un numéro national dédié à l’interruption volontaire de grossesse (#IVG).

Najat Vallaud-Belkacem doit lancer un tel site à la fin du mois, indique-t-on au ministère, confirmant une information de France Inter.

« Aujourd’hui, alors que l’accès à l’#avortement semblait être un droit acquis de longue date, on réalise qu’il est l’objet de remises en cause, rarement frontalement, toujours insidieusement », écrit le Haut conseil.

The Empowerment cure : How teen sex-ed has undergone a brilliant and rapid evolution
But there’s one area of reproductive health that has been quietly and steadily improving for years: reducing teen pregnancies. During the last years of the Bush administration, the teen birth rate rose for the first time since 1992. But from 2007-2011 (the four most recent years the experts crunched the numbers), the trend swiftly reversed and the teen birth rate nationwide dropped a whopping 25 percent.
Essentially, what health-care workers learned in the dark years between 2005 and 2007 was that just telling teens to abstain from sex was not an effective approach. Trying to reduce teen pregnancies by telling teens what not to do is myopic. As teenagers—especially black and Latino teens—start to grapple with issues of oppression, sex, and economics, they need support in developing healthy, empowered lives in general. Rather than telling teens what their sexual choices should be, they need the tools to decide for themselves.

“You can’t come into communities of color and say, ‘This is what needs to happen, so we’re going to do this,’” says health educator Gary-Smith, who works with Portland’s African American communities. “What you need to do instead is go to the community and have them determine what’s important to them, so it’s relevant to their lives. For communities that have a history of being disenfranchised and defined by others, giving them a space to talk about what that’s like for them—and then they can frame what they want—is really important.”
This local outreach and holistic work on sexual health is possible because of a major recent change in how the federal government funds sexual health programs. Instead of betting all its money on abstinence-only education, since 2010, reproductive health advocates pushed federal policy to instead favor “evidence-based” teen pregnancy prevention programs—meaning rigorous research has shown they’re actually effective.
