European Abortion Policies Atlas
10th May 2022
EPF-IPPF EN have launched a joint “European Abortion Policies Atlas”, which scores 52 European countries and territories on legal frameworks to access safe abortion care. The Atlas clearly shows that Europe is not as progressive as it might seem, as our study on barriers to legal abortion and abortion travel in Europe confirms.
This first in-depth analysis of abortion policies across Europe finds that legislation on abortion care throughout the region is a diverse legislative and administrative patchwork – the consequence being that women’s experience of abortion care largely depends upon their postcode.
