Abortions only partially approved

The Constitutional Court gave a clear answer to only one part of the abortion legislation. Abortion at a woman's request up to the 12th week of pregnancy, for no stated reason, does not contradict the Slovak Constitution, the Pravda daily wrote on December 5.

However, it is not clear whether it is possible to abort a pregnancy up to the 24th week if the fetus is genetically damaged, since the relevant Health Ministry directive is not in line with the constitution.

With lawyers and experts now unable to agree on this issue, parliament will have to approve a revision to the abortion law that would govern it.
