ANO organises abortion petition

The co-ruling New Citizen's Alliance (ANO) party is organising a petition to push for acceptance of a change in law to support the right for abortions in up to the 24th week in the case of genetic disorders. Joining ANO are the non-governmental organisation Aliancia žien Slovenska (Women's Alliance of Slovakia), civil group Možnosť voľby (Pro Choice), and women's group Urobme to! (Let's do it!).

Leader of Urobme To!, Anna Ghannamová, said: "It is very important that women say something about their rights."

Pavol Minárik of the Christian Democrats (KDH), which is against the change to the abortion law, said that ANO was making a difficult situation in the coalition worse.
