CNA Staff, Oct 8, 2020 / 12:10 pm (CNA).- The Spanish Equality Minister said Wednesday it is “more than necessary” to repeal a law that requires parental consent for children aged 16 and 17 who want to procure an abortion.

Irene Montero said Oct. 7 in the Council of Ministers that “we demand, like so many [abortion advocates] from all corners of the world, the right of all women to decide about their bodies and we demand a freely decided motherhood and above all a full and free sexual life.”

The minority coalition government, formed by the Spanish Socialist Workers’ Party and Unidas Podemos, also intends to promote sexual education and a right to the “newest forms” of contraception.
