September 28, 2020 – As a part of the International Safe Abortion Day, a public action ‘I don’t want others to decide about my body’ was held today in Split on Marmontova Street for the right of women to a safe and accessible medical procedure for abortion.

Domine is a feminist NGO, a non-profit and non-partisan association aimed at promoting women’s rights, which has so far organized numerous protests and public actions to point out the problems that the female population is struggling with daily.

“In the 21st century, after the rights our grandmothers have exercised, we must take to the streets and say – I will not let others decide about my body. This is intended for the Ministry of Health and the irresponsible Government, which is unable to pass a law on the right to abortion, ie freedom to decide on the female body, which they owe us in a more modern way”, said Mirjana Kučer, executive coordinator of the Domine Association.

“We want the new law to be passed by the decisions of the Constitutional Court, to be more modern and to improve opportunities for women’s reproductive health, and not to be a step backward. It is inadmissible that a woman who has decided to have an abortion is brought in front of a commission and that she starts to reconsider that decision”, she added.

The action, among others, was supported by the president of the Smart party, MP Marijana Puljak.

At the meeting, everyone adhered to the prescribed epidemiological measures, such as social distance and wearing a mask, following what was written in the invitation of the Domine association to public action.
