Seven NGOs speak out on emergency contraception

Seven NGOs voiced their joint opinion on the thorny subject of emergency contraception in the wake of a parliamentary committee meeting that recommended the morning after pill not be sold over the counter. 

In a statement, the Integra Foundation, The Critical Institute (TCI), the aditus foundation, the Platform for Human Rights Organizations Malta (PHROM), Gender Liberation, the Malta Gay Rights Movement (MGRM) and Organisation for Friendship in Diversity (OFD) said: “The Parliamentary Committee’s recommendations on emergency contraception reflect weak governance and a half baked approach to human rights, social rights and public health.
