Important Takeaways:

  • Sweden’s ‘Conservative’ Govt to Make Abortion a Constitutional Right
  • Sweden’s allegedly “conservative” center-right coalition government, led by Prime Minister Ulf Kristersson, has expressed a desire to change the country’s constitution to enshrine the right to abort babies.
  • “Establishing something in the Constitution – the foundation of our entire legal system – has several functions. It shows the values that characterize our society and it sets up robust protective walls around rights,” they said.
  • The move comes as fellow European Union member-state France has also vowed to make abortion a constitutional right
  • However, some national conservative-led countries in Central Europe, such as Poland and Hungary, have moved in the opposite direction, enacting more pro-life policies.
  • Poland has largely outlawed abortion
  • Hungarians have so far taken a more modest approach to strengthening the rights of the unborn, putting in place a policy that requires mothers to listen to the heartbeats of their children before confirming they wish to proceed with a termination.
