Last December, the Spanish government decided to reform Organic Law 2/2010 on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Voluntary Termination of Pregnancy, thereby banning women from opting freely for a termination of pregnancy.

 

But “restrictive laws do not reduce, in any case, the number of terminations,” said Yolanda Rodríguez, Board member of Médicos del Mundo Spain. “It will only lead to women with little resources to terminate their pregnancies in unsafe conditions that can even put their lives at risk.”
