A report from a hearing in Brussels, 18th of October 2005.
The hearing on abortion was the first of its kind to take place in the European Parliament, where women testified about not being able to access abortion due to restrictive law.
The report explains how the hearing came about and what happened at the hearing. It includes a short summary as well as speeches in full length. The media section contains list of all participating countries and how the hearing was mentioned in national media, and some background to the media work. Hopefully the report can be used as reference when planning similar event, to learn from and to get new ideas.
