Zika Focuses Attention On Latin American Women’s Reproductive Rights

Humanosphere: Zika started a conversation about women’s health we should have already had
Lisa Nikolau, a Seattle-based journalist and Humanosphere contributor, discusses how the suspected link between Zika virus and microcephaly has focused attention on women’s reproductive health and rights, including access to abortion, in Latin America. She includes comments from Diane Bushley, global program manager at Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest and the Hawaiian Islands, and Latanya Mapp Frett, executive director of Planned Parenthood Global, and she cites a recent report from the Kaiser Family Foundation and a 2012 study from the Guttmacher Institute (3/3).
