PL reacts on motion presented by Marlene Farrugia

The Labour Party has declared that the discussion on the motion presented by Opposition MP Marlene Farrugia on Wednesday on a sensitive subject like abortion should take place in society in a mature and free manner, rather than being stifled in a motion like this one.

It was pointed out in a statement at the end of a meeting of the Labour Parliamentary Group that the discussion should not be monopolised by the political parties in Parliament, but rather, should be based on honesty, respect towards different opinions, lacking in sensationalism or condemnation and against the stigma.

The PL further stated that the Prime Minister had already expressed his clear opinion on the issue, this being against the legalisation of abortion.

However, it was stated that it still believes it should follow closely everything being stated by society in the discussion.
