THE STORY

This painting is named after the famous feminist slogan “My body, my choice”. This slogan defends the right to autonomy and bodily integrity, in particular the right to abortion. Many people do not know it, but there are still several countries in Europe where the right to abortion is not acquired!

In Poland, for example, the government attempted in 2016 to drastically restrict already very limited abortion rights. This sparked a huge wave of protests across the country under the name #blackprotest and the government finally backed down!

But the fight is far from over… On December 1st, 2020, the Constitutional Court declared unconstitutional abortion in cases of fetal abnormalities. Thousands of activists took to the streets and a veritable feminist revolution began, under the banner #StrajkKobiet (women’s strike). Red lightning painted on their palms and on their masks, they roamed the cities in protest. But now, because of the measures against COVID-19, it is more difficult than ever to be heard and almost impossible to get an abortion abroad…

And what about traditionally conservative European states?

Like Vatican City, Andorra, Liechtenstein and San Marino, Malta is the country with the strictest abortion regulations in Europe. In this highly Catholic nation, there is not even an exception when it comes to rape! Knowing that most of the sexual abuses occur within the family circle, many women are forced to carry the child of their father, their uncle…

If they have the budget – and there is no Lock-Down due to Corona – they can attempt to go overseas to have an abortion. Otherwise, they order abortion pills online – both dangerous and unsafe – or worse, they have an abortion illegally on the island… risking their lives and facing up to 3 years in prison if they get caught!

Such violations of women’s rights should no longer exist today, especially in countries of the European Union! Abortion must become an indisputable right for all women. That’s why my painting My body my choice embodies and supports this claim.
