Reproductive Health in Japan

Japanese reproductive situation seems very different from those of other nations. It sure is. But it is not the exotic mistery that makes ours different. Now, let's exchange the views on sexuality, life, pregnancy, abortion, child-rearing etc... I will try to explain our situation. Would you please let me know yours?

Reproductive health in Japan

I have started this blog to share information about the reproductive health in Japan. Although Japan literally has liberalized abortion in 1948 to reduce the over-flodded population of this war-inflicted nation, its criminal law has been prohibiting the procedure. Our legal system does not let women to choose our reproductive destiny, and we are barely allowed to choose it for our physical health. Wives still need written permission on the procedure from their husbands. However, Japanese women, even the feminists, keep silence on this topic, probably because the "economic reason" clause if applied so loosely that most of the 300 thousand abortions a year in this nation done on that ground. The Japanese situation is very different from other Western nations, and there is little discussion surrounding the problem. So, I hope we could share the different view on this topic to improve each of our reproductive health situations.
