Health care reform to allow foreign women undergo abortions at Czech clinics

03-05-2011

The proposed reform of the country’s health care system will allow foreign women to undergo abortions in the Czech Republic. The Czech Health Ministry says current abortion legislation, approved in 1986, is in breach of EU regulations, the ministry said. A similar measure was included in the previous draft of health care reform, and was one of the reasons why it was rejected by the Czech Parliament. The ministry would like the lower house vote on the current proposal by the end of June.
