No more “abortion on demand” under new law
« on: Fri 20 Dec 2013, 16:02 »
A few years ago I posted (on the link at the end) about Spain's abortion law - the new law under Zapatero. The title of my post was “Abortion on demand available for all women over 16 in Spain from today”. That is no longer the case. Now we have a conservative government, and a new abortion law has just been approved. A tough one.

Under the new law, the seemingly personal campaign of Justice minister Justice Minister Alberto Ruiz-Gallardón, abortion is only allowed in cases of rape or threat to mother’s health. Previously women could have abortions on demand up to 14 weeks' gestation, and up to 22 weeks if serious deformations had been detected in the foetus. Sr Ruiz-Gallardón denied that women would be criminalized for seeking abortions – as had been the case before Zapatero’s socialist reform of the legislation – and said that his new law would defend both the life of the unborn and women’s rights. Some women might find that claim a bit hard to process …

The new law will now work its way through parliament where the government’s majority makes it almost impossible that it will face any problems.

This is an amazing step back into the dark ages, initiated by that bastard of an ultra Catholic. What the hell is he doing thinking he has the right to deprive women from taking some control? These bigots should be boiled in oil.  :33:

Question, do they have the morning after pill here?. Other than that the wife just summed it up by saying 'Well they'll just go back to the way it was before, the well off leave the country for one and the poor make do with a back street one' :undecided:

The bastard probably knows his own mother would have terminated him if she'd had half a chance - at least she bloody well should have  :gonnagetit:

I will never understand why these morons would rather populate the world with unwanted, neglected, abused, uneducated and/or impoverished children than give women the choice.
