France: Right to Abortion as a Constitutional Right



Q: Did France recently make abortion a constitutional right?

A: Yes, in February 2024, France became the first country in the world to enshrine a woman's right to abortion in its constitution.

Q: Why did France make this change?

A: There were a few reasons:

The U.S. Supreme Court's overturning of Roe v. Wade in 2022 sparked concern in France about potential future restrictions on abortion access.

Public opinion in France overwhelmingly supports abortion rights.

The move aimed to strengthen legal protections for abortion access.

Q: What does this mean for women in France?

A: The new amendment provides the strongest legal protection for abortion rights in the world. It makes it much harder for any future government to restrict access to abortion.

Q: Are there any limitations on abortion access in France?

A: Yes, abortion is currently legal in France up to 14 weeks of pregnancy. There are also mandatory waiting periods and counseling sessions required before an abortion can be performed.
