Real Productive Justice – The Centre for Disability Law and Policy at NUI Galway is currently researching the experience of disability and reproductive rights.

They are interested in talking with disabled people who are over 18 who have experienced difficulties on the basis of disability or a mental health diagnosis when seeking the any of the following:

  • fertility treatment,
  • contraception,
  • abortion services,
  • pregnancy and childbirth services,
  • surrogacy, fostering or adoption services.


The key goal of the project is to make visible the experiences of disabled people in Ireland seeking reproductive justice. They welcome involvement from anyone who identifies as having a disability. This might be physical, sensory, intellectual or psyhcosocial disabilities. They also include people who identify as neurodivergent, users and survivors of psychiatry. It may be some of these together.
Invitation to Participate
The research explores how your experience of disability and reproductive rights intersect with other identities such as gender, sexuality, age, race and class?
  • As a disabled person, do you have have experience of institutionalisation?
  • Do you live in a rural and urban area?
  • Are you disabled and a migrant?
  • Are you a disabled Traveller?
Participants have the choice to remain anonymous, or not, throughout the project.
