Spain and Italy clash over abortion laws

But access to abortion remains patchy due to the high number of medical personnel who identify as “conscientious objectors” and can therefore refuse to perform abortions. Data from the Italian ministry of health shows that over 63% of gynaecologists are conscientious objectors. In some southern regions like Sicily and Abruzzo, that percentage climbs to over 84%.
