Report on barriers to accessing abortion care in Spain

12th May 2021

The report “Access to voluntary abortion in Spain: main barriers” has been published. The report, which cites also our research project on barriers to legal abortion in Europe, focuses on territorial inequalities in access, difficulties related to the choice of the method, the situation generated by the Covid-19 pandemic, and fundamentalist and anti-abortion rights groups. The second part of the report also presents a list of 45 barriers to access to the right to abortion and 45 recommendations to be taken into account in order to transform current public policies in Spain.
