Spain seeks to reinforce abortion rights, paid period leave Updated: 2022-05-18 05:54:17 KST

Meanwhile, Spain's leftist coalition government approved a draft bill to reinforce abortion rights on Tuesday.
The bill also includes a provision for women who suffer from painful periods to take state-funded paid leave, making Spain the first country in Europe to do so if passed.
The new law will also eliminate the parental consent required for women aged 16-17, who wish to terminate their pregnancy, alongside the removal of a three-day mandatory reflection period.
It also includes paid leave for pregnant women from week 39 and guarantees the distribution of free menstrual products at public institutions such as schools and health centers.
