New Leader Of Green Party Against Abortion But In Favour Of Healthy Debate
'Nothing is ever static in politics'
20th September, 2017
In a relatively radical stance for Maltese politics, the new leader of green party Alternattiva Demokratika has said a national debate on abortion would be healthy for society... even though he is personally against its introduction.
Malta has the most restrictive abortion laws in the world but several Maltese women travel abroad to get an abortion every year. Despite the island's small population, official statistics show the number of Maltese women who travelled to the UK for an abortion in 2015 was the fifth highest in the world.
