Challenges of Human Reproductive Health

Human reproduction has many challenges from many years. There is historical and social ambivalence that whether human reproduction and sexuality indulgence are private rights or public concerns. Family creation is a completely private matter, involving personal, intimate motivations and occasions. But, when with advanced technologies herbal medicine was replaced by medical science for artificial regulation of fertility it was fiercely opposed for violation of alleged public values. During 1820s to 1960s Canadian criminal code considered spreading knowledge and means of contraception as crime against mortality.

One of the most common public challenges to concept of reproductive health rights is conservative religious hierarchies. The concept is based on conviction that reproductive health is state of complete physical, mental and social well-being in all matters relating to reproductive system and to its functions and processes. Reproductive health implies that people are able to have safe and satisfying sex life and that they have capability to reproduce and freedom to decide if, when and how often to do so.
