A NEW law could mean Spain will be Europe’s most restrictive country on abortion.
The ruling conservative People’s Party (PP) has proposed a bill that will only allow abortions in cases of rape and risk to a mother’s life, approved by medical examination.
The current law, like the rest of Europe, allows abortions within the first 14 weeks of pregnancy.
According to polls from Metroscopia, over 60% of Spain – a traditionally very Catholic nation – want the law to remain the same.
The law will be voted on in July by Parliament, where the PP has an absolute majority.
