In this edition, we take a look at how Covid-19 is affecting reproductive rights across the globe. We report on how the Polish government took advantage of a lockdown which prevents public protests, to debate legislation that would tighten access to abortion. We also talk to Zara Ahmed from the US-based Guttmacher Institute whose latest research reveals the devastating global impact Covid-19 will have on women's reproductive health. Plus how France by contrast, has extended access to medical abortions from seven to nine weeks during the pandemic.
