Irene Montero steps on the accelerator and the Council of Ministers has approved this Tuesday in the second round the draft of the new abortion law without waiting for the reports of the General Council of the Judiciary (CGPJ) and the Fiscal Council. The rule will now be sent to Congress for legislative processing. The head of Equality has been in charge of announcing the novelties introduced by the law. Among others, the possibility that girls aged 16 and 17 and also women with some type of mental disability voluntarily interrupt their pregnancy without the permission of their parents.

In addition, the leader of United We Can has celebrated that “the rule will cease to be a taboo” and that “going to work with pain is over”. The minister referred to the rights related to women’s menstrual health at all stages of life, including specific leave for women with very painful and disabling periods. On the other hand, in institutes, prisons, women’s centers, civic centers or social centers, give away free menstrual health productssuch as tampons, pads or menstrual cups with the aim of ending menstrual poverty.

The free distribution of contraceptive methods in educational centers linked to campaigns on sexual education is also collected. And the free access to the morning after pillwhich should be in all pharmacies.

“We are profoundly transforming public policies to be able to move towards another model of sexual health and another sexual culture”, Montero pointed out. The Minister of Equality has ensured that sex education will be mandatory at all stages: “To learn about the different contraceptive methods, to combat violence and prevent sexually transmitted diseasesto be able to talk about menstruation…”

As Montero explained based on a study, the lack of sexual education is a decisive factor for the increase in sexually transmitted infections. “This feminist government wants to ensure access to sex education to know their rights and their bodies and build affective relationships based on good treatment and consent”, he indicated.

Irene Montero charges against the PP

On the right to abortion, Montero has argued that there must be health professionals willing to facilitate it. It is about, says Montero, making the right to conscientious objection compatible with the right to voluntarily interrupt her pregnancy.

Finally, this new standard includes measures to promote “good practices in all stages of pregnancy”, especially in childbirth and postpartum, including, the incorporation of a prepartum leave from the 39th week of gestationwhich will not consume any day of maternity leave.

Montero thanked the President of the Government for “trust” in this law. He also had words of thanks for “the Prime Minister of Equality”, Bibiana Aído, and for the Ministry of Health, Education, Inclusion, Finance, Justice and the workers of the Ministry of Equality. “They have at their side a feminist government that guarantees rights for all women, while the right and the PP destroy them. When the coalition governs, we expand rights,” he criticized. “All mothers and grandmothers should know that their sons and daughters are going to grow up with more rights,” says Montero.
