PRESS RELEASE | Abortion Counselling services to be launched in Malta

On June 23th, the European Parliament voted in favour of the Matic Report, and in doing so passed a resolution which calls on EU countries to ensure women are offered high quality, comprehensive and accessible sexual and reproductive health and rights, and to remove all barriers impeding them from using these services. Malta consistently falls short of these standards, with national policies needing urgent review and updating to comply to this resolution.


On Sunday July 11th at 9am, members of Doctors for Choice Malta will announce means of accessing the services supported by the Matic Report, and demonstrate counselling as an example of good clinical practice. 


During the launch the Women on Waves abortion Robot will provide abortion pills.


Counseling for abortion is legal in Malta, and is undertaken regularly by volunteers of the Family Planning Advisory Service, which Doctors for Choice Malta supports.

The action is a collaboration between Women on Waves, Doctors for Choice Malta, Young Progressive Beings, Students for Choice, and Women on Web
