A protest in support of abortion rights was held in the capital Zagreb on Saturday, September 29, demanding abortion procedures be freely provided. Although legal, abortions are costly and limited in Croatia, due to the decreasing number of doctors willing to perform them. Further associated protests are possible throughout the country in the coming days and weeks.
Abortion rights activists fear that Croatia's abortion laws, set to be rewritten by February 2019, will be reformed into an all-out ban.
Individuals in the country are advised to avoid all demonstrations as a precaution.
