Abortion news

From 2007-January to March

Background information on many aspects of abortion is found in individual essays, e.g. public opinion, clinic protests, clinic violence, parental notification, abortion methods, and post abortion syndrome. Information about the use of stem cells is elsewhere.


News items:

  • 2007-JAN-08: Portugal: Results of public opinion poll released: Results of a poll commissioned by the Portuguese daily newspaper Correio da Manha were released. it showed that 64.1% of Portuguese voters intended to vote yes in a coming referendum on abortion access to be held on FEB-11. Voters will be asked: "Do you agree with the decriminalization of the voluntary interruption of pregnancy, in the first 10 weeks, in a legally authorized health establishment?" 27.3% said that they would vote no, to uphold the present law. However, the turnout for the vote is expected to be low. This could cause the minority to win because those opposed to abortion access will probably be highly motivated to vote. Also, if fewer than 50% of the electorate votes, the referendum will be invalid. More info.
