Blog: Why attacks on legal abortion are a trade union matter
On 2 October last year, UNISON was proud to stand in solidarity with the thousands who marched in cities across the UK, and in other parts, of the world to protest against new limits on abortions in Texas. Now it seems the US supreme court has voted to overturn Roe v Wade – a momentous ruling that will result in abortion becoming immediately illegal in an estimated 26 states when it is officially issued.

The Polish government has brought in a near-total ban on abortion in that country, only permitted now in cas...

“ If I evacuate to the west to some safe place, people will die ”
This article was originally published in Emergency Physicians International. On Feb. 23, Dr. Vitaliy Krylyuk was helping run a medical conference in Kremenets‎ City — a small, picturesque town in the western region of Ukraine.

Polio Makes a Comeback in Ukraine as War Halts Vaccination Campaign
In the fog of the war in Ukraine, it’s easy to forget about a smaller, but still very poignant tragedy that occurred months before the fighting began, back on Oct. 6, 2021.

A second case of the disease appeared in the Zakarpattya region to the south on Dec. 24. And over those same months, 20 other children have tested positive for the poliovirus, though with sub-clinical, non-paralytic cases of the disease. [time-brightcove ...
