French lawmakers vote to protect abortion access in constitution

A parliamentary committee in France has approved a proposal to guarantee women’s freedom to end pregnancies in the constitution.
The proposal, which was promised by President Macron last year, aims to prevent any future restrictions on abortion rights.
However, the proposal faces opposition from right-wing parties and needs a three-fifths majority in both houses of parliament to become law.
The full debate is scheduled for January 24.
