Pregnancy in Japan
Ninshin in Japan
This website offers information on pregnancy and childbirth in Japan, specifically for foreigners in Kumamoto such as technical interns and international students. If you need help with an unplanned pregnancy or may face discrimination due to a pregnancy while in Japan, please consult help immediately.
Here are good books to know reproductive injustice in Japan.
I participated the translation projects of these two books into Japanese.

FUKUOKA--Police on Feb. 22 arrested a man who has admitted to tricking his pregnant teenage girlfriend into taking abortion pills by saying they were for a sexually transmitted disease.
The 18-year-old had a miscarriage, but investigators could not determine if the pills were the cause, according to Fukuoka prefectural police.
