The autochtonous transmission of Zika virus in Brazil was confirmed by April 2015 but the notification of cases was only required since February 2016. And so, according to the Ministry of Health data, by April the 2nd 2016, there were 91.387 suspicious cases of the disease that were notified with a rate of almost 45 cases per 1.000 inhabitants. The Centre for Disease Control of Atlanta, United States, admits there is a link between Zika virus and microcephaly happening in new-borns whose mother had been infected by the virus during their pregnancy. However, despite the high rate of microcephaly cases in Brazil, it is not possible yet to have a clear view of the proportion of pregnant women infected by the virus that will give birth to babies with microcephaly. WHO recommends that the head circumference for a full-term baby is at least of 32 cm. Therefore, new-borns with a smaller head circumference must be monitored to check whether they are with microcephaly or not. From October 2015, when those investigations begun in Brazil, to May the 7th 2016, 7.438 suspicious cases of microcephaly have been notified, among which 1.326 have been confirmed. To give you an idea, in 2014 147 cases were notified in 2013, 167 and in 2012, 175. Regarding birth control, the Ministry of Health recommends the "equipes de saúde da família" (a public health program for the people most in need) to strengthen the supply of contraceptives for the population, and particularly for women of a reproductive age. In the public health network, different types of contraceptives are available for free. However, not all women have access to those contraceptives or to the proper explanations on how to use them. Furthermore, the Ministry of Health recommends that women who wish to get pregnant must receive information on how to protect themselves from an infection by Zika virus during their pregnancy. Despite all this, according to the population-based research"Born in Brazil" that took place between 2011 and 2012, 55% of pregnant women had not planned their pregnancy. Therefore, many women do not search for any kind of information before they get pregnant. About termination, WHO recommends that women wishing to do so out of fear of microcephaly, must have access to safe environments for abortion. In Latin America, abortion under any circumstances is only possible in Cuba, Puerto Rico, French Guina and also in Uruguay. In Brazil, termination is only allowed when the mother's life is at risk, in cases of rape and, more recently, in cases of anencephaly. However, the national research on abortion, also population-based, conducted a research by secret ballot in 2010, that showed that 1 woman out of 5 will abort before turning 40. So, it is mainly the most vulnerable women, and in particular those who cannot afford an abortion in a clinic, that will have to bear the burden of the lack of public policies in the eradication of the mosquitoes that carry the disease and also in the illegality of abortion. According to a report released in the newspaper Folha of São Paulo on January the 31st 2016, the reporter Monica Collucci showed that, many women, faced with the possibility of having a child with microcephaly, use precautionary abortion, because the diagnostic of microcephaly is very late, usually during their third trimester. Data from the non-government organisation "Women on Web" have also shown an increased demand of misoprostol by Brazilian women since the beginning of the Zika outbreak. With the aim of safeguarding healthcare access for those women, but also to avoid them to expose themselves to unsecured method, the same group that had led a discussion, which begun in 2004, about abortion in cases of anencephaly, alongside the Federal Supreme Court, and which, in 2012, issued in the approval of abortion in the cases of anencephaly, wish to undertake a similar action for cases of microcephaly. Besides the right to abortion, the action aims to ensure the dignity of children born with any kind of disability. So, it would not only protect women wishing to pursue their pregnancy, but also those who would choose to end it. About anencephaly, which was the subject of the 2004 action, it is incompatible with extrauterine life. Therefore, the idea that prevailed was that if there was no life to protect, forcing a woman to pursue her pregnancy was an affront to her dignity and also a kind of torture. According to the anthropologist Debora Diniz, who is also a professor at the Federal University of Brasília, the anencephaly case is different from the microcephaly one, because in 2004 there was no outbreak or vector, which made the current debate more urgent. Furthermore, unlike what is happening with anencephalic foetus, microcephalic foetus are viable, they can survive. This raise the issue of abortion itself. From a different point of view, feminist leaders ask for a broader discussion about the access to abortion in different circumstances as it is the case in other countries. This debate is particularly led with the aim to fight the pro-life movement arguments which claim that abortion after an infection by Zika would be a form of eugenics. Beyond the challenge of women access to reproductive health recommendations in the Zika outbreak, Brazil is currently experiencing a political crisis that leaves us even more worried about the outcome of this epidemic and also about its consequences on women and children health. Thanks to all of you for your time and consideration.
