300 to 400 Maltese women go abroad for an abortion each year - AD chairperson
Sunday 4 February 2018
Approximately 300 to 400 Maltese women go abroad to have an abortion each year, according to AD chairperson Carmel Cacopardo.
Speaking during an activity organized by the Malta Unborn Child Movement, Cacopardo said official statistics only exist for the UK. Annual medical reports in the UK show that some 60 Maltese women a year have an abortion performed in that country. These numbers, however, do not include abortions performed in Italy (mainly Catania, Rome and Milan but also other locations) as well as Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium and others to obtain an abortion.
