Spain May Legalize Early Abortions Spain prepares to fully legalise abortion, by Fiona Govan:

Spain_flag Spain is preparing to fully legalise abortion for the first time to allow women to have terminations on demand in the early stages of pregnancy.

The move has put the Socialist government on a collision course with the   Catholic Church which has argued the need "to restrict and not expand   abortion" in Spain.

A parliamentary committee presented recommendations to Congress this week that   included legalising early stage abortions, while gradually imposing more   restrictions as pregnancies progress.

The proposals will form the basis of a draft bill to be presented to   Parliament later this year that will tackle one of the traditionally Roman   Catholic nation's final taboos and bring the abortion law in line with most   other European countries.
