Prime Minister Ambiguous about Abortion Position

Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, April 11, 2018 – Prime Minister Andrej Plenković did not answer directly during Question Time in parliament whether he was personally in favour or against the right to abortion, stating only that, in his opinion, everything should be done to avoid abortion.

“As far as my opinion is concerned, my position is that everything needs to be done so it doesn’t come to that situation. The Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ) too is of the opinion that a general ban isn’t realistic while everything else will be on the agenda considering that we have the Constitutional Court ruling and that a new task force will work on such an important issue,” Plenković said answering a question by Social Democratic Party (SDP) MP Vedran Babić who asked whether abortion was an inviolable and free right of every woman that must not be limited.

Babić retorted that he was not satisfied with the prime minister’s reply and that he could have simply said ‘yes’ or ‘no’, and added that the SDP believes that the right to abortion should not be restricted.

“People who have their life’s path cannot stop their activities nor should they be thwarted in that just because someone is in office,” Plenković told SDP MP Siniša Hajdaš Dončić who called the PM out because his brother-in-law has been appointed director of the Dubrovnik airport, his cousin head of the Croatian National Tourism Board office in Germany, his uncle a member of the management board of the Biokovo Nature Park and his close friend ambassador to Great Britain.
