Croatia refuses to ban abortion

Croatia’s Constitutional Court has upheld a law allowing abortion, saying the legislation does not breach the country’s constitution.
However, the court urged parliament to pass new abortion legislation within two years.
The head of the Constitutional Court, Miroslav Separovic, told a news conference that current legislation allowing a woman to terminate up to the 10th week of pregnancy did not breach the constitution.

“It is not up to the Consitutional Court to rule when human life begins,” Separovic told reporters.
