Women’s reproductive health has been the subject of many discussions for sometime now. There have been many arguments about the right of the woman to their body and control towards their reproductive functions.

For the more conservative sectors of society, a women’s reproductive health should not be a subject to control from the woman herself to by any other person. According to the fundamentalists’ point of view, the reproductive function of a woman is natural phenomenon that should not be interfered with by anybody.

However, this point of view have been vigorously opposed by the more liberal sectors of society stating that a person has the right to control his or her own body thus if the woman do not want to have children, society should respect her decision.

What do women say over this issue? The opinions of women all over the world varies when it comes to reproductive health. Some would tend to take the side of the conservative sector and some are more liberal. For the more liberal women, taking a stand on women’s reproductive health issue could be very emotional. It cannot be denied that most women will need to give so much once they have children. In some cases, women will need to give up their dreams and their careers especially when their children would need extra care and attention as in the case of special children.
