For a right to abortion in Europe
The Observatory has been focussing its research on European, national, and civil society perspectives on the right to abortion in Europe.

The regulations and provision of pregnancy termination in five EU Member States are compared and contrasted with the recommendations of the World Health Organisation and the vision of reproductive justice. The aim is to show what needs to be done to effectively ensure and protect the rights and health of pregnant people.

Transnationally linked opponents of abortion do not just seek to ban abortions; they also question gender equality in Europe. As a result, democracy, human rights, and the rule of law are threatened.

With our publications, we are making a substantive contribution to the Europe-wide debate about this. The findings of our work were also published as factsheets concisely.
