The abortion law cannot be touched, yes from the Chamber to the M5s agenda


Government ok with redrafted text. The feminicide commission arrives (ANSA)

   Majority and opposition vote almost unanimously: the government will have to "refrain from undertaking initiatives of a regulatory nature aimed at eliminating or limiting the system of protections guaranteed by law 194".

This is the content of the agenda presented to Montecitorio by the 5-star movement on the bill for the establishment of the bicameral commission on feminicide.

The Chamber of Deputies showed no hesitation: the Odg was approved with 257 yes votes, no votes against and three abstentions.

Therefore, on the initiative of Parliament, the Meloni Government, which gave its green light after a more dry reformulation of the text, is committed not to touching the current law on abortion, number 194 of 1978. 

    However, there was no shortage of bickering between the two sides of the hemicycle.

The approval of the Odg "at my first signature", declares M5s deputy Stefania Ascari with satisfaction, "marks a turning point in the debate on this extremely delicate issue".

"Even the majority and the Executive - she adds - have realized that it is a dutiful commitment towards all women and have changed their opinion".

Analysis that does not find correspondence between the center-right benches.

Chiara Colosimo accuses the pentastellati of having attempted "a trip, which failed miserably".

"Fratelli d'Italia - clarifies the deputy - defends law 194, noting that it should not be changed in any way".

According to Colosimo, the centre-right "has very clear ideas".

    A conviction in line with that of the premier, recalled last week by the FdI group leader in the Senate Lucio Malan. "FdI's position is clear - he underlined - and has been reiterated several times by the president Giorgia Meloni: we are in favor of maintaining the 194 thus as is".

The senator had intervened to appease the controversy aroused by the presentation of the bill to recognize the legal capacity of the unborn child, signed by Roberto Menia.

"A personal initiative, without any follow-up", had defined my colleague Malan.

    With the Odg on abortion filed away, the House voted unanimously on the bill for the establishment of the parliamentary commission of inquiry into feminicide.

Therefore, the impasse on the representation of small groups has been overcome: 18 senators and as many deputies will investigate the causes and dimensions of all forms of gender-based violence.

The text, modified in the Montecitorio Commission, will now have to return to the Senate for the final go-ahead.
