“Twenty years after the proclamation of our Charter of Fundamental Rights, (…) I would like us to update the Charter. In particular, make more explicit the foundation of environmental protection, and the recognition of the right to abortion," said President Macron.

In the speech on the priorities of the French presidency of the EU, the French head of state pointed out that "we are the generation that rediscovers the precariousness of the rule of law and democratic values".

Currently, regulating the voluntary interruption of pregnancy in the European Union is a national power of the countries that make up the regional bloc.

MEPs elected a president of the European Parliament, Roberta Metsola, from Malta, a country where abortion is prohibited in any circumstance, that is, they do not even have the grounds. Said State included a condition in its agreement to belong to the community that exempted it from any agreement on this right.

In Andorra, one of the European states that still maintains a total ban on abortion, the president of the Stop Violence Association, Vanessa Mendoza Cortés, has faced charges for denouncing the absence of guarantees for this sexual and reproductive right.

In Liechtenstein, Monaco, Poland and San Marino there are also restrictions associated with the possibility of terminating a pregnancy.
