Following European Women´s Lobby, the Turkish Prime Minister and Cabinet Members started to discuss a possible ban on abortion. Currently they are working on a draft law to diminish the legal right of having abortion in ten weeks to only four weeks. This is a clearly message for forbidding of abortion at all!
Since 1983, women in Turkey have this legal right but now the picture starts to change tremendously. Women’s organisations in Turkey, including the EWL Coordination in Turkey, started a big campaign nationally and internationally. they created the web page ’Say No to Abortion Ban’, where you can find their protest letter.
