Costa Rica News – Mario Redondo, deputy of the Christian Democratic Alliance, attack the regulation of therapeutic abortion.
The claim of this party is that this is an attempt to allow abortion on demand.
The ruling states that the physicians will have to follow a clear procedure to determine if there is a risk to the mother.
Two women were denied their application for therapeutic abortions. The technical details of what is legally allowed and mandated must be made clearer. The Ministry of Health is involved in this.
The United Nations dictates that Costa Rica must allow abortions in cases where the mother’s life is at risk.
Abortion on demand is contrary to Costa Rica’s Constitution and the opinion of many Costa Ricans.
