The 2020 Humanity in Action Fellowship presents: the Humanity in Action Podcast Series ‘Stories from the Unity of the Realm’
Episode 7: ‘Frítt Val? – The Struggle for Abortion Choice in the Faroe Islands’
During the 2020 Copenhagen Fellowship, our Fellows created a series of mini-podcasts delving into some of the topics covered on the Fellowship.
Listen to the seventh episode ‘Frítt Val? – The Struggle for Abortion Choice in the Faroe Islands‘, created by Emilie Helene Holm, Tór Weihe, Maria McIntyre, and Trine Pejstrup.
This episode sheds light on the complex aspects of the debate on legal abortion. Globally, the debate is dynamic, controversial and continuous. Even within Scandinavia, often perceived as the front runners of human rights, no consensus has been found. Here, the Faroe Islands serves as a window into a modern society with an ongoing discussion on the topic of legal abortion. The Fellows have invited two experts to guide us through this debate!
The podcast series consist of 7 episodes.
