It's my body, is it? Young people's right to make choices about their own bodies

Being able to make decisions about health, body and sexual life without fear or discrimination is a basic human right. Yet all over the world, people are judged, discriminated against and arrested, simply for making choices about their bodies. From banning abortions to restricting their use among minors to letting parents decide whether or not their intersex children should get irreversible gender-altering surgery. Do young Europeans have a right over their own bodies? Is the principle that a body is sovereign to itself is valid in Europe? Join this discussion that spans from disability and reproductive rights to the LGBT+ and feminist movement.
