A career has been unleashed among the main parties of the left by flaking by law, the shielding of access to abortion in public health and to promote that women can exercise that right with all guarantees and without coercion.
This quantity of competition has led the PSOE and more country to ahead twice to the Ministry of Equality of Irene Montero and present different legislative initiatives in this regard at the Congress of Deputies. And that despite the fact that the department that leads us can announced a new law that is entrusted to be completed in December.
That announcement has not dissuaded the PSOE and more country to move tab. The last one has been the party led by Íñigo Errejón, who yesterday recorded a law enrollment to ensure that abortions are practiced in public health against widespread practice of being derived to private clinics. Thus, for example, you want to end the anomaly that there are eight provinces where you have not practiced a single abortion in public hospitals.
The legislative proposal of the most country pursues three objectives: Facilitating that the interruption of pregnancy can be done in centers of public health, regulating the conscientious objection of health professionals and, finally, guarantee that after an intervention there is a period of low Five days or four weeks, depending on the trimester of gestation. Two weeks before was the PSOE who hit the accelerator to get ahead of us. Can we. In his case he was through a law proposal that was discussed in the plenary of the congress and that he presented expressly penalizing with three or 12 months of jail to those who harass women who go to clinics to abort or professionals who work there.
Voted in favor also united we can even though this change in the Criminal Code will be one of the aspects that will be included in the project that is preparing the Ministry of Equality under the name of sexual and reproductive health and voluntary interruption of pregnancy .
Minister Irene Montero pointed out that he could be completed for December and justified his impulse in the need to ensure that the voluntary interruption of pregnancy can be provided on the hospitals of public health and without coercion to women. Not in vain, 87% of abortion are made in extra-pite environments, of which the vast majority are practiced in private clinics.
One of the aspects that has already transcended this law, and that also includes the proposal of more country, is the regularization of conscientious objection. The idea is to copy the formula that has been applied in the Law of Euthanasia, which featured a great parliamentary consensus.
According to this, there would be a record of objectors, but not to reprise them, but to detect in which provinces or hospitals there is a lack of professionals to carry out interventions. The objective would be to reinforce those deficiencies with more professionals who can provide the service.
In addition to the guarantees to shield the abortions in public health, the law preparing Irene Montero will raise news regarding sex education. It has not yet transcended any detail, although it will be in line with the awareness of the different identities and sexual expressions that carries the known as law, whose official name is much longer: law for real and effective equality of trans people and For the guarantee of the rights of LGTBI people. It is probably this chapter one of the most debate may arouse.Updated Date: 08 October 2021, 10:35
