Once upon a time, there were many strange ways to get contraception or abortion, such as jumping from a building, poking a hanger into the womb, and so on. These sides, which now seem absurd, also reveal the potential for physical harm when women are unable to induce births in the right and safe way.

The word "abortion" is no stranger to us.

As many girls grow up, health education classes do more about it - perhaps by playing a film about abortion, often with a bit of a thriller, like warning us: Abortion is terrible, don't let yourself go down that path.

In high school, I could hardly forget the health lesson about abortion.

On a yellow summer afternoon, there are images on the projection screen, including blood-soaked images, and although mosaics have been put on them, you know that one thing has happened, and what (perhaps an embryo?). It's right there. Beside the female students, or half-eyes, or bite the hand, or pick up a coat to cover themselves, each eye frown. The atmosphere was very uneasy.

The whole lesson concluded: to have sex, remember to wear a condom. At first glance, it's reasonable, at least not to advocate to keep your virginity, you seem to have that point of choice.

However, I still can't help but think, in case I accidentally pregnant what to do? Even, what if I didn't have sex voluntarily today and became pregnant? (Same-on-the-spot release:"Clearly there are security measures, or pregnant" 19-year-old mother's confession)

In retrospect, the lesson gave me the feeling of almost just fear and discomfort. No one has told us that, in fact, abortion may not be as scary as it seems. For a long time, we still lacked the right media to understand abortion, contraception and sex.

So, today I'd like to introduce you to a special museum: MUVS.

MUVS Founder: Contraceptive Knowledge Is Important, Abortion Rights Are Valuable

It is located in Vienna, Austria, the Museum of Contraception and Abortion. The museum was founded by Dr. Christian Fiala, who works to spread the knowledge to the general public.

The museum officially opened in 2003. It houses thousands of exhibits, the main exhibition area is divided into "contraceptive area" and "abortion area", showing the evolution of ancient times.

Once upon a time, contraception or abortion could have been used in many strange ways, such as jumping off a building, poking a hanger into the womb, and even in the 20th century, cola was used to kill sperm for contraception.

These sides, which now seem absurd, also reveal the potential for physical harm when women are unable to induce births in the right and safe way.

When a woman can't legally have an abortion, she has to turn to a secret doctor, and she's at no less risk than she is on a cold operating table.

When a woman loses her right to an abortion, she's no longer safe.

Recently, Taiwan's referendum proposal "Heartbeat Bill" has been a buzzing argument between the two sides. The right side is shouting to respect every life; (Recommended reading: What do you think of the Heartbeat Act?) We support abortion precisely because of love for children .

"These laws won't stop women and the woman from havings, or from abortion making the best bodies for theirs and families, it will just just mean are forced to do so unsafe and glyn with."
"These laws will not allow women to choose not to have an abortion, nor will they allow families to make "good" decisions. It will only force women to have abortions through illegal pipelines and be charged with crimes. Emma Watson, Emma Watson

Imagine that when abortion is no longer legal today, most women may not choose to give birth to their child, but instead seek medical help. So you're lying on a cold operating table, and you don't know what the doctor will do with the fetus in your belly, and you don't know if you're safe. But the law forces you to have no choice.

In this case, a woman's physical health will be even less protected. What's the difference between contraception and abortion hundreds of years ago?

"I will lik to to ensure that the terrible past dos not repeat itself."
"I want to make sure that those bad old ones don't repeat them. 」

As Dr. Christian Fiala says, as times go by, human rights should not go back.

Please give pregnant women the freedom to choose whether to have an abortion and the right to have a safe and legal birth.
