SLOVAKIA – 136 parliamentarians call on Slovakia not to pass the tabled anti-abortion bill

The European Parliamentary Forum for Sexual & Reproductive Rights reports that in the past week, 136 parliamentarians from 27 countries across Europe, including 53 Members of the European Parliament, signed a letter voicing deep concern over recent attempts in the Slovakian Parliament to tighten the current abortion law. 

The letter, dated 9 September 2020, urged the National Council’s ruling coalition to respect the fundamental rights of all Slovakians to make autonomous decisions about their own bodies and reproductive rights. It was sent on 14 September to the Slovakian President Zuzana Čaputová and the President of the Slovak Parliament Boris Kollár.
