Should abortion rights be enshrined in the French constitution? • FRANCE 24 English

In this week’s French Connections, Genie Godula and French Connections take a closer look at what French law says about abortion and contraception as there have been some new developments. Recently, the government made contraception and condoms completely free for anyone under the age of 26. Meanwhile, the morning after pill has become free for all women. With abortion rights moving backwards in the US, Poland and Hungary there have been calls to enshrine abortion rights in the French constitution. While a majority of French people support the idea, changing the constitution is a complex affair.
