The Constitutional Court found on 21 February 2017 that the law from 1978 regulating pregnancy termination is in line with the Constitution, he told N1 television.

The court ordered parliament to adopt a new law within two years that would stipulate educational and preventive measures in order to make pregnancy termination an exception, because the valid law is obsolete and was passed in the previous political and social system, said Šeparović.

The fact that parliament has still not executed the court’s decision is not a good message, given that the court’s decisions are mandatory, he said.

Therefore, the Constitutional Court expects its decision to be executed and parliament to adopt a new law which will be in line with the court’s findings, he added.
