Watch: Abortion will not be introduced if am elected – Fearne

Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

Partit Laburista leadership hopeful Chris Fearne said that if elected as leader and eventually as Prime Minister, the government led by him would not introduce abortion.

Deputy Prime Minister and Health Minister who is running for the ruling party’s leadership election was interviewed live on Newsbook.com.mt by Fr Joe Borg. The public was urged to submit its questions to Fearne.

During the last MEP election campaign, abortion dominated the campaign. The European Union has no competence at a European level on the matter, candidates Alex Agius Saliba and Robert Micallef who ran for Partit Laburista had asserted. They added that the EU cannot impose the introduction of abortion on a Member State.

The issue arose after the Party of European Socialists of which Partit Laburista is member, had abortion on its manifesto.

Then government spokesperson Kurt Farrugia had denied that Partit Laburista in government would introduce abortion.
