    The legal and social freedoms allow women to make decisions about their bodies and reproduction without interference from the government or others. This includes access to contraception, family planning services, maternity care, and safe abortion. Abortion laws vary significantly by country and region. Some countries prohibit all forms of abortion while others allow it under certain circumstances such as rape, incest, fetal abnormalities, or a threat to the mother's life. Goes way back.
