All women who wish, for whatever reason, to terminate their pregnancy may do so freely, up to 14 weeks of pregnancy. That is what the reform of the law on abortion says, which could come into force in Spain, even this year.
If the new abortion law comes into force, all women who decide to interrupt their pregnancy will be able to do so with total freedom and legal security within well-defined terms and assumptions. In addition, the law includes a stimulus to prevention through affective and sexual education, and contraceptive methods. The voluntary interruption of pregnancy will also be a benefit of public health, so that public hospitals will have a specialized unit for women who wish to abort.
The new law continues to maintain the term to abort until 22 weeks of pregnancy in the case of malformation or serious mental and physical anomalies in the fetus, although the committee proposes to postpone this limit until the last days of pregnancy. It will continue to allow termination until 12 weeks if the pregnancy is due to rape.
When the baby enters the second trimester of gestation, all the basic structures of his body, both inside and out, are already formed, albeit in miniature. The baby is a little over 9 centimeters. Its body grows faster than its head, but you can already see its neck.
At the end of the 13th week, your little arms will lengthen and be proportionate to the rest of your body. The baby will already have more developed facial muscles, which will allow him to make faces and even suck a finger. The controversy is served. On one side is the Government, and on the other the sectors that oppose the total decriminalization of abortion.
Among other things, they allege that this new law may cause an increase in the number of abortions among the younger population and threaten the rights to life. And you: What do you think about that? Do you agree with this new law? What would they agree on and what would they disagree on?
