Health Ministry accepts verdict on abortions

The Health Ministry accepts the December 4 verdict by the Slovak Constitutional Court regarding abortions. The ministry had argued that the current regulation that permits abortions within 24 weeks if the fetus is genetically defective was unconstitutional.

On its website, the ministry states that the issue is currently being analyzed, and that it will decide on what further steps will be taken only after conclusions emerge from the analysis.

[The case dates back to a complaint filed in 1986 by 31 MPs who were against permitting abortions within 12 weeks of conception without a serious reason, and within 24 weeks if the fetus is genetically defective. - ed. note] TASR
