The government is finalizing the law on abortion with deviations from the rule in the presence of pathologies

This week, the Department of Equality and the Department of Social Security agreed that the draft of the new Abortion Law, led by Minister Irene Montero, would allow for accidents due to broken rules paid 100% by Social Security and from day one. According to Moncloa sources consulted by this Saturday, the government’s intention is that situations caused by menstruation as a cause of pathology be included in the list of accidents due to temporary disqualification.

Although they have not yet closed the Equality text, Moncloa indicates that these menstrual losses will be for cases in which there is a diagnosed pathology. For example, endometriosis: if this uterine disease causes disabling pain, you might consider discharge.

This measure is still being discussed in the government as a whole, so it can still be changed. The Special Leave, approved by the Department of Social Security and Equality, is set up as a form of temporary disability, which, like any other leave, must be granted and administered under medical supervision.

It will not be associated with any minimum or maximum number of days, contrary to the original proposal of the Ministry of Equality, which was fixed at three days, with the possibility of an extension to five.

In addition, they will be funded from day one by Social Security and will not require a minimum contribution period, unlike common illnesses, which require a minimum period of 180 days in the previous five years, the same sources say.

The economic vice president on Thursday clarified that “the text has not yet been closed” and recalled that this “is being done collegially by the entire government.” The intention is to close it “within the next few days,” they point out in Nadia Calvinho’s department, “to advance the policy of gender equality promoted by the entire government as a whole.”
