The International Day of the Girl Child has been marked by Art and Community Center – Artpolis in National Library through the event “The daughters that were never born” by promoting the report “Abortions in Kosovo” and a panel discussion with experts on the topic of reproductive and sexual health.
The discussion of induced abortions is opened often world-wide, whereas in Kosovo is never discussed in public discourse.
