Following the bill presented by Independent MP Marlene Farrugia earlier this week concerning abortion decriminalisation, Malta’s Green Party APDP has approved a resolution to support said bill. This in fact adopts a new policy for the party, stating that despite abortion should not be normalised, the current legislation should be ‘brought up to date after more than 160 years. It needs to be brought in line with medical and scientific progress over the years.
Meanwhile, the Labour Party has in plans a proposal for national consultation in regards to this topic. The Party stated that the national consultation would gauge the public’s feelings on abortion whilst also brining moral, scientific and legislative concerns and facts into the conversation.
