In response to new Iranian government provisions to ban contraceptions for women and voluntary sterilization programs, Amnesty International issued a statement that characterizes the new provision as strategy to “reduce Iranian women to baby making machines.” “The proposed laws will entrench discriminatory practices and set the rights of women and girls in Iran back by decades. The authorities are promoting a dangerous culture in which women are stripped of key rights and viewed as baby-making machines rather than human beings with fundamental rights to make choices about their own bodies and lives,” said Hassiba Hadj Sahraoui, deputy director for the Middle East and North Africa at Amnesty International.
