The bill on a total ban of abortion, adopted by the National Assembly of Abkhazia in the third reading, caused a heated discussion in the community. The new law was sharply criticized by the majority of healthcare workers. According to doctors, a controversial approach to the abortion issue may entail great health and social problems. Women express solidarity with the doctors.
P.S. After the material was done, the bill was accepted on the 3rd reading. According to the final version, there is only one exception when abortions are permitted-fetal death. Now it only has to be ratified by the president to become a law.
