COMMENTS

The new Law replaces Decrees of 1957 and 1985. The latter allowed for abortion only: - on medical grounds - rape - on social grounds for women over 40 (up to 12 weeks) - on social grounds for women with 5 or more children (up to 12 weeks) - on social grounds for all women under 18 years These decrees were abolished the day after a popular uprising. Since the introduction of the new law, maternal mortality has decreased by 317%. The main problem is still the lack of sexual and reproductive health services and modern contraceptives outside the main cities
