European Parliament urges EU to make abortion a basic right

‘The European Parliament endorsed a resolution which calls for adding “everyone has the right to safe and legal abortion” into the charter of fundamental rights within the EU.
On Thursday, 324 members of the European Parliament (MEPs) voted in favor of the resolution, with 155 voting against and 38 absent from the assembly in Strasbourg, France.
Helene Fritzon, a Swedish MEP from the Socialists and Democrats parliamentary group, said abortion was “not a question of politics, opinions or religion. It is, and always must remain, a person’s free choice.”
