Sweden Relaxes Rule on Foreigners to Have Abortion

Foreign women will be allowed to have abortions in Sweden from January under changes to legislation passed by the Swedish parliament on Thursday.

"The abortion law is going to be changed so that foreign women will be allowed to have abortions in Sweden," a statement from parliament said.

The previous legislation stipulated that abortions could only be performed on Swedish women or women living in Sweden, or if the national health office gave special permission.

The amendments were passed by a slim majority, with 134 in favour against 124 opposed and 91 deputies abstaining.
