No one sees the fathers: Israeli fathers’ experience of feticide

The current study aims to address this research lacuna and reveal the experience of Israeli fathers whose fetuses underwent feticide due to a severe abnormality. Seventeen interviews with men who experienced the feticide of their fetuses were carried out. The results indicate that men’s experiences in this arena are socially constructed and limited by gender roles and expectations.

Academic paper: Is induced abortion really declining in Armenia?

As in other post-Soviet settings, induced abortion has been widely used in Armenia. The potential for under-reporting is particularly high for sex selective abortions, for which there is growing public backlash, and medical abortion, a practice that is typically self-administered outside any professional supervision.

Editorial: Israel must allow women to have an abortion without the need for government approval

In Israel abortion is forbidden and any doctor who performs one without the approval of a public commission is committing a crime. Legislation must be passed that would allow women to have an abortion under their own free will and by choice, without the need for government approval, at least at the early stages of a pregnancy. A bill in this regard, drawn up by women legal experts and already introduced to the Knesset, is aimed at ensuring this by permitting a woman to have an abortion until the 13th week, without the approval of a commission.
