More about the idelogical measures of the new Spanish Government who now aims to ensure that adolescents under the age of 16 can access abortion without the permission of their parents which certainly seems to be contrary to the most basic provisions of the parents’ right to education, and especially the human care of their children; at the same time, it deprives these teenagers of the irreplaceable company and support of their parents in a situation of such obvious difficulty as that of being involved in an abortion. It seems to us that the fundamental thing in these cases is to accompany the child and not to deprive her of the support of her parents, in addition to promoting the economic and social measures necessary to help them in such a difficult situation. According to the Ministry of Health, 310 abortions were performed in children under 15 years of age and 9,518 in young people between 15 and 19 years of age in Spain in 2018 (HERE)
