Women’s Link sues the Region of Murcia Health Department in Spain for violating the right to a dignified abortion

Women’s Link is suing the Health Department on behalf of “Ana”, a woman who was denied information by the Health Department about a serious fetal condition for almost six weeks during her pregnancy. She also faced discrimination in the Santa Lucía de Cartagena Public Hospital in Murcia, and was prevented from accessing abortion services in a dignified manner. As a result, she suffered serious physical and psychological harm.

On International Women’s Day, 8 March, Women’s Link demanded access to safe, legal and dignified abortion for all women in Spain
