The High Council for Equality between Women and Men (HCEfh) reported Thursday morning its proposals for improved access to voluntary termination of pregnancy (abortion) in France, considered “problematic” today, especially because a decrease in the supply of care.


Nearly 40 years after the passage of the law Veil “access to abortion is sometimes problematic,” reads the report HCEfh submitted to the Minister of Women’s Rights, Najat Belkacem-Vallaud.

Abortion can be a “real obstacle course,” especially because of a decrease in the provision of care (130 health facilities have closed practicing abortion in ten years) and a deterioration in the quality of reception, after HCEfh.

Commissioned by Ms. Vallaud-Belkacem in April and to overcome these “obstacles”, the High Council has made 34 recommendations relating to the right to information, the provision of care and governance.

The first recommendation to replace the Code of Public Health legalizing abortion the phrase “pregnant woman whose condition in a situation of distress may ask a doctor to terminate her pregnancy” with “the woman who wishes to pursue a pregnancy can ask a doctor to interrupt. “

The HCEfh also suggested deleting the requirement to seven day cooling provided between the two consultations required before an abortion, or to allow the suction abortion under local anesthesia in centers or family planning education and medical homes.

The report also calls for establishing a moratorium on the closure of abortion clinics, fund research on abortion and create a national plan and a national sexuality, contraception, abortion Observatory.

In its mission statement the Minister asked the HCEfh to “explore the best practices and tools for each territory to assess accessibility” services related to abortion.

In a first report in September, the High Council had recommended the creation of a corporate website “clear and determined in favor of abortion rights.”

The site was launched two weeks later and the creation of national number “one stop” free and anonymous asked by HCEfh is also under consideration.

According to the Directorate of Research, Studies, Evaluation and Statistics (Drees), 222,500 abortions were performed in France in 2011, a rate of 15.1 abortions per 1,000 women.

In France, 35% of women have had an abortion at least once in their lives, says the National Institute for Demographic Studies (INED).
