France Close To Constitutionalising Right To Abortion

France Close To Constitutionalising Right To Abortion
Jan 31 2024 Share

The French National Assembly has passed a groundbreaking bill taking a significant step towards constitutionally enshrining the right to abortion, with 493 votes in favour and 30 against. 

This move comes in response to the US Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade in June 2022. If the bill becomes law, France would be the first country worldwide to include abortion rights in its constitution. 

The legislation now heads to the Senate for further debate and voting, with a subsequent review by a joint parliamentary body for adoption.

Justice Minister Éric Dupont-Moretti highlighted the global context, citing the vulnerability of fundamental rights even in large democracies. 

Prime Minister Gabriel Attal hailed it as a “great victory for women’s rights,” and Gender Equality Minister Aurore Bergé called it “historic.” The bill, while approved by the National Assembly, faces additional votes in the Senate and the French Congress.

 A three-fifths majority is needed for adoption, expected by March 8, 2024.

Opposition from the Senate president and right-wing lawmakers poses challenges, arguing that constitutionalization is unnecessary. 

However, supporters stress the need to protect abortion rights amidst rising global anti-abortion movements.
