Abortion and the European Convention on Human Rights

Dr. Grégor Puppinck
Volume 3 Issue 2 Article 7
In recent years, the European Court of Human Rights has ruled on a number of
cases dealing with the issue of abortion, providing a sufficient corpus of
jurisprudence which may be analysed in a consistent manner. A number of
analysts, on both sides of the abortion debate, are not satisfied with this
case-law. This article aims not to discuss each ruling of the Court case by
case, but to try to find, in an objective and systematic manner, the coherency
of the jurisprudence of the Court, and in doing so, to present a reasoned legal
account of abortion under the Convention.
