Comments following the Press Conference held by the Minister of Health on Wednesday 16 November 2022.
Life Network Foundation Malta refutes the Deputy Prime Minister’s statement that doctors and
mothers in Malta are at risk of prosecution. In fact, no prosecutions have ever been brought against
doctors or obstetricians who acted to save a mother’s life. With the existing law, the medical
procedures in Malta ensure every attempt is made to save the life of the mother and preborn child.
The codification of this principle may set minds at rest, however, any amendments proposed should
not be used to open the way to abortion.
