Constitutional Court endorses reform allowing minors aged 16 and 17 to abort without parental permission



The Constitutional Court has endorsed the legal reform approved in 2023 that allows minors aged 16 and 17 to have an abortion without parental permission.

Legal sources indicated that the plenary session of the court approved the draft of the sentence drafted by the progressive wing magistrate Laura Díez, who defends that the norm is constitutional.

The progressive majority of the court has thus rejected the appeal presented by the Vox deputies against Law 1/2023 on sexual and reproductive health and voluntary interruption of pregnancy, which modified the law approved in 2010.

However, judges Concepción Espejel, Enrique Arnaldo, César Tolosa and Ricardo Enríquez, from the conservative wing, have announced a dissenting vote against the majority decision.

Vox took the law before the Constitutional Court considering that it violates the principles of freedom, plurality and legality, and the rights to life, equality and ideological freedom.

The reform also eliminated the three days of reflection and shielded abortion from anti-abortion protocols such as the one proposed by Vox in Castilla y León.
