Are abortion rights in France at risk due to the upcoming presidential elections?

The current right to access abortion appears to be at risk in France.

The feminist group INSOMNIA took a remarkable action in Paris on the occasion of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.

Aujourd’hui, la violence masculine est la première cause de mortalité pour les femmes de 16 à 44 ans dans le monde. C’est pour ça que la nuit du 24 novembre, le groupe féministe INSOMNIA a mené une action symbolique d’ampleur en mettant 100 affiches dans les espaces publicitaires des abribus le long des grands boulevards parisiens.
