Spain

This week Spain decriminalized abortion up to 14 weeks of pregnancy. The government enacted the law over the strenuous opposition of the Roman Catholic Church and brings Spain’s abortion law in line with much of the rest of Europe. Minors of 16 and 17 can obtain abortions without parental consent and in some cases notification. This is a major victory for women, which we hope to replicate in the former Spanish colonies in the Western Hemisphere.
