Free abortions extension a possibility in France

| No Comments

The lower house of the French Parliament passed a bill that would allow for reimbursement of abortions for all and free contraception for all minors on Friday according to The New York Times and ABC News.
Currently, medical insurance in France pays for abortions in full for minors and the poor. Other women can be reimbursed up to 80% of the cost for the procedure, which can cost about $580, ABC News said. Contraception in France was partially reimbursed. If the new law passes through Senate, which is likely, minors between the ages of 15 to 18 would be able to receive free contraception, the New York Times said.
Many in France say not enough doctors provide the procedure, ABC News said. Other medical providers charge a large amount for the procedure, which the bill would not cover ABC News said.
France is one of the European countries to allow abortions for minors without parental consent, ABC News said.
