South Africa Lifts All Restrictions on Abortions

South Africa's first democratic parliament's abortion law went into effect on February 1, 1997. The law gives women of any age the right to decide whether or not to have an abortion. The law will also allow women and girls who have no health insurance to receive state-funded abortions during the first twelve weeks of pregnancy.
