The Parliament of the unrecognized Republic of Abkhazia passed the bill banning abortion.

The amendment to the Constitution stipulates that “the state shall equally protect the life of a mother and of an unborn child”, Meduza media outlet reports

The bill allows abortion only in case of prenatal death of a baby. In all other cases, the termination of pregnancy will be held criminally liable.

The law also prohibits the clinical trials of human embryos.

Emma Gamisonia, the only female MP in the unrecognized republic, opposed the law. According to her, the bill “will cause corruption in the medical field and lead to prohibited illegal abortions.”

The total ban on abortion without exceptions was passed in Nicaragua, El Salvador, Chile, Malta, the Philippines, and the Vatican.
