Spanish government will revive restrictions on abortion

Catholic World News - January 26, 2012

Spain’s newly installed government, under Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy, plans to replace some legal restrictions on abortion.

Justice minister Alberto Ruiz-Gallardon argues that Spain’s abortion law, championed by the previous Socialist government, was enacted “without consensus.” The law now allows unrestricted abortion during the first trimester of pregnancy. The new government will recommend restrictions on abortion, the justice minister said. He did not specify what measures the government would propose.
