EU PARLIAMENT: PROTESTS AGAINST REVISION OF ABORTION LAW IN SPAIN” “” “

(Sir Europe – Strasbourg) – The problem of abortion makes a comeback in the European Parliament’s premises. Actually, some events (protests, press conferences, sit-ins) will take place today during the plenary session to oppose to the proceedings for the revision of the abortion law that is going on in Spain. The Parliamentary United Left group held a rally outside the European Parliament late in the morning, with placards asking for "safe, guaranteed abortion for everyone", that support "abortion rights" and make statements of "sympathy with Spanish women". A press area of the United Left and individual Green and S&D MEPs will be held later today. A statement against the revision of the Spanish Law (called "restrictive revision") was made by two Liberal Democrat MEPs. Tomorrow, instead, the European Commission will submit a "statement on sexual and reproductive health" to the floor again. The statement – the commissioner who will show up is not known yet – will be followed by a short debate, but no voting has been planned on any text. It will be mentioned that before Christmas the EU Assembly had rejected the "Estrela" resolution that supported abortion rights. ” “
