Good news: Slovak parliament rejected the restrictive draft bill on abortion

AI-Index:

In case you haven’t already heard the good news, yesterday evening (20 October) the Slovak parliament rejected the restrictive draft bill on abortion. This is an incredible victory and the result of the tireless efforts of women and activists, including Amnesty Slovakia, and of the international support and solidarity.

In the weeks leading to this vote there was a great level of uncertainty about whether the bill was going to be voted or not. This made it difficult for us to relaunch the Urgent Action but the pressure was kept at national level, with the backing of all the actions taken internationally.

We will be publishing an Outcome UA with additional details as soon as possible.

Thanks so much again for the support and for contributing to this victory.
