Marlies Schellekens, MD
Dr. Schellekens has been working as a general practitioner for 25 years. Since 1982, she has worked in the area of sexual and reproductive health in an abortion and family planning clinic in the province Zeeland, south of the Netherlands. In 2011, she left her my practice to have more time for her favorite topic: family planning and abortion worldwide. Dr. Schellekens believes that as long as women do not have the right to choose they cannot make free choices for themselves, their family, or their children. In a world with so many possibilities, children have the right to be wanted. This is why she chooses to support and work for Women on Waves, Women on Web, and Mama aan de Evenaar.
