Spanish political party seeks to revise abortion law

.- The spokesperson for the congressional caucus of the People’s Party in Spain, Soraya Saenz de Santamaria, has said the party is focused on changing parts of country’s new law on abortion.
 
During a Sept. 29 press conference at the offices of the newspaper La Razon, Saenz de Santamaria was asked about overturning the law on abortion, which many leaders of the People's Party have pledged to pursue. She offered no comment but instead emphasized the need to make changes to the law.
 
She said the party has already voiced its rejection of the abortion law passed by the government and that it has appealed it before Spain’s Constitutional Court.
 
Morning-after pill

Saenz de Santamaria said the law needs to be revised in specific areas, such as parental consent for minors who wish to obtain an abortion. “The reasonable and normal thing would be that minors are accompanied and supported by their parents at that moment,” she said.
 
Regarding the morning-after pill, she said the party opposes the government’s policy of making it available without a prescription. In a health care system like that of Spain, in which people have the option to seek emergency care, the argument that the pill needs to be available quickly without a prescription does not hold water, she added.
