Population Research Institute—Last year, while the U.S. celebrated the overturn of Roe v. Wade, Malta had its own abortion battle. The abortion debate started in mid-2022, when a pregnant American tourist’s membranes ruptured at 16 weeks.
The baby survived, but the mother still chose to be airlifted to Spain to terminate her pregnancy, an action that was illegal to do in Malta.
Using this case, pro-abortion lobbyists almost succeeded in pressuring the government into passing an abortion bill. But pro-life backlash, including a massive protest, arranged by the Life Network Foundation proved support for Malta’s pro-life stance. In June, the Maltese government adopted clear pro-life amendments to the bill instead, which was signed into law at the end of that month.
