A protest against the introduction of abortion is being organised by the Life Network Foundation in collaboration with Doctors for Life and I See Life.

The protest will be held on Sunday 4 December, starting from in front of Castille Square, Valletta at 3pm.

In a statement, the organisers said the legislative amendments presented by the government to open the door for the introduction of abortion in Malta.

The government argues that the aim of the amendments is to provide more legal certainty for doctors who terminate a pregnancy when a woman’s life or health is a serious risk. 

But the protest organisers said that if the amendments become law, abortion will be allowed for any reason, because it “may” affect the mother’s health, including mental health.

Last week, 80 academics told the government that the way the wording of the amendment was presented indicates the government wants to introduce abortion.
