Proposed Spanish abortion reforms offer least protection for unborn in Europe

.-

A study by the Spanish organization Derecho a Vivir (Right to Life) has revealed that the law on abortion proposed by the Zapatero government would make Spain the European country with the least protection for the unborn and pregnant women.

The study points out that in other European countries, the law clearly spells out the State’s duty to protect basic rights, but the proposed Spanish law would be in stark contrast, denying women information and leaving the unborn without protection.

It argues that the Socialist government’s reform would be much more permissive than the laws in other EU countries. “The government’s claim that it is making Spanish law conform to that of other countries in the area of abortion is false. If the Zapatero-Aido bill is passed, Spain would be the exception,” the study says.

“Germany, Portugal, France and Belgium establish a shorter period of 14 weeks [for allowing abortion],” while “only Sweden and Holland have a longer period, 18 weeks and 24 weeks respectively,” Right to Life notes.
