Karin Spaink

Karin Spaink (born December 20, 1957 in Amsterdam) is a journalist, writer and feminist.

Spaink is a free speech advocate and social critic. Some of her battles include:

  • New-age writers who assert all diseases are only a psychological phenomenon;
  • The Church of Scientology, who sued her for more than ten years;
  • Opposition to a U.S. court decision which took down an anti-abortion site that contained names, addresses, photos and personal data of abortion providers along with calls for violence (Spaink describes herself as pro-choice on the issue of abortion, but felt that freedom of speech should prevail);
  • The right to inform people about methods of suicide and to discuss the danger or reliability of various methods.
