Season 1, episode 2: Abortion
In Eib , means shame in Arabic, we examine how the lives of ordinary people have been affected by society’s definitions of gender and the restrictions surrounding it.
The program’s host, explores people’s encounters with divorce, reproductive health services and sexual orientation; topics rarely discussed in Arab society and tainted by the word “eib” or “shame”.
In this episode from the first season, we listen to when an unmarried woman finds herself accidentally pregnant, and abortion becomes her only choice.
