Tougher abortion bill goes to Parliament

Peter Gabura, who was expelled from the Christian-Democratic Movement (KDH) a year ago and is now an independent MP, has submitted a draft bill to Parliament that would ban many abortions which are now legal, the SITA newswire wrote. Under the deputy’s bill any abortion would be illegal unless it is carried out under circumstances specifically spelled out in the existing law. At the end of 2007, Slovakia's Constitutional Court ruled that all abortions with a woman’s consent and without stating any reason were legal up to the twelfth week of pregnancy. If the fetus is genetically damaged, abortion is legal at any time.
