MADRID (AP) — Spain's Justice Minister says the conservative government will present by the end of October its proposed changes to the country's abortion law, with the amendments expected to introduce new restrictions on pregnancy terminations.
Alberto Ruiz-Gallardon said Monday in an interview with Radio Nacional de Espana the alterations "will be in line with the Popular Party's longstanding position" on abortion, though he did not elaborate.
The Popular Party has long sided with the Catholic Church on moral and social issues, and fought the previous Socialist government's 2010 abortion law scrapping restrictions up to the 14th week of pregnancy.
Changing that law was one of the Popular Party's main election promises in a 2011 ballot that brought it to power. Its parliamentary majority enables it to pass legislation despite other parties' opposition.
