THE Balearic Parliament has adopted in the plenary session a new law that regulates the creation of a network of support for pregnant women.
The law brought about a heated debate with some criticising it for paying more attention to the defence of the right to abortion than the protection of women.
The deputy PP leader Maria Jose Bauza, stressed the need to provide pregnant women with information about all the resources they have at their disposal to bring to fruition a healthy pregnancy.
However, the deputy PSIB, Conxa Obrador, said the law “does not provide anything that is not already covered” and criticised the lack of resources to support women, compounded by cuts by the PP.
