Abortion Register Splits Ruling Parties

Published söndag 19 juli 2009 kl 10.43
Göran Hägglund's Christian Democrats are no longer opposed to abortion

Proposals to register women who have an abortion has split Sweden's governing centre-right coalition. The Christian Democrats are for the proposal, while the other parties are against it.

Sunday's edition of Svenska Dagbladet reports that the government's commissioner Anders Milton wants to take the identity numbers of all women that have abortions. He says that this will make it possible to follow up complications from the procedure, as well as evaluate methods used and improve practises for the future.

Chatrine Pålsson Ahlgren, who is a Christian Democrat member of parliament in the committee on social affairs (riksdagens socialutskott) says that Milton's proposal is absolutely worth trying.

Her colleagues from the other ruling parties disagree, however, and the secretary of the Center Party, Anders Flanking, says that the Minister for Health and Social Affairs, Göran Hägglund, who is also a Christian Democrat, should make it clear that the abortion register will not be approved by the government.
