The Re(al)productive Justice project is about disabled people and reproductive justice. Reproductive justice is about the choice to have a child, the choice not to have a child, and being properly supported in those decisions. Disabled people should be able to make decisions about having children, to make choices about not having children, and to be properly supported in those choices. However, many barriers exist which prevent disabled people from having the same choices as everyone else. Disabled people have a right to access medical, social work and legal services related to making decisions - and having their decisions respected - around pregnancy and birth. Services should be designed and delivered so that they meet the needs of everyone who needs to access them. The Pregnancy and Birth Toolkit is for professionals who provide services connected to pregnancy and birth in Ireland. It can be used by a wide range of professionals working in the medical, social work, and legal sectors.
