20,000 people take to the streets to support pro-life laws as Government tables bill to introduce abortion
20,000 people (4%of the population) have taken to the streets and more than 24,000 people have signed a
petition urging the Government of Malta to abandon the bill it has presented to Parliament in favour of an
alternative amendment clause that was written by 81 leaders and academics in medicine, law and ethics.
Malta’s current laws protect the right to life of the unborn child, as well and ensuring mothers are provided
with all the medical care they need, resulting in zero maternal mortalities in the last 10 years. Malta’s
doctors are protected by the law in cases when their actions result in the death of the unborn child, when
they are acting to save the life of a mother.
