COMMENTS

  • A new government project for health insurance system does not include either abortion or contraception
  • In its daily work the Bulgarian FPA underlines that abortion is not a contraceptive method, and that a preferable choice is modern contraception, which, among other benefits reduces the risk of infertility. However, emphasis on abortion as a human right is given.
