UPDATE: The voting did not happen but is scheduled to be soon. We need this bill to be withdrawn immediately!
Today, (Tuesday 22 August) Liberian senators will vote to legalize abortion through the Public Health Bill during a special session of the Senate of Liberia.
Under Liberia’s current law, abortion is allowed in exceptional circumstances - where the mother’s life is at risk, rape/incest/felonious intercourse, and disability of the fetus. These are rare situations.
