Organic Law 1/2023, february 28th, for the modification of the Organic Law 2/2010, march 3rd.


This law partially modifies the previous law with the main purpose of correcting some problems in its effectiveness: the difficulty for women to access voluntary termination of pregnancy in public health system hospitals and the significant difference in access between different autonomous communities, also visible in the access to contraceptive methods or the setback in the decision-making capacity with regard to the voluntary termination of pregnancy of women aged 16 and 17, as well as women with disabilities, operated by Organic Law 11/2015, of 21 September, and recognised by different United Nations bodies. It also improves the treatment of those pathological situations that affect health during menstruation and advances in the provision of measures for public authorities to guarantee reproductive rights in the gynaecological and obstetric field.
