SLOVAKIA – Solidarity statement with Slovakia: We won’t keep quiet!
by International Campaign for Women's Right to Safe Abortion
Jan 8, 2019
As part of the international campaign of 16 days of activism against violence against women civil society in Slovakia gathered at a protest and march across Bratislava to voice their demands and protest against structural gender-based violence, especially any steps limiting access to abortion. The march was called Nebudeme ticho! (We won´t keep quiet!) and was organised by Moznost Volby, ASPEKT, Bratislava bez náckov and Povstanie pokračuje.
In May 2018, the far-right political party in the Parliament proposed an amendment to the abortion law. According to the new law, abortion would be accessible only in three cases: if woman´s life is in danger; if pregnancy was a result of crime and in cases of fetal damage.
