The right to choice: part 1
Our right to choice is still impeded by many factors.
The right to choice is a very emotive subject because it straddles social, moral and economic spheres. In the context of feminist theory, the right to choice refers to the right of a woman to reproductive freedom. In a democracy, we exercise our right to choose our leaders through an electoral mandate. Choice is indicative of the degree of freedom in a society. The more mature a society, the more choices are available to its people in every sphere. The Consumer Protection Act describes the right to choice as the right to be assured, wherever possible, access to a variety of goods and services at competitive prices.
