SPAIN – Association of Accredited Abortion Clinics of Spain says all clinics remain open

Given that abortion is recognised as an essential health service by the World Health Organization (WHO), after the declaration of a state of emergency in Spain due to COVID-19 and the reinforcement of lockdown, we want to announce that ACAI’s clinics remain open to ensure that abortion services are available to women who request it. For the time being, this is being guaranteed both through public referral and by the accredited centres.

(Las clínicas acreditadas para la IVE permanecen abiertas para asegurar la prestación sanitaria de aborto provocado a las mujeres que la soliciten. El recurso sanitario de aborto provocado está siendo por el momento garantizado tanto desde la derivación pública como desde los centros acreditados.)
