Family Planning Legislation. Report on a Survey. EURO Reports and Studies 85.
This study reviews and analyzes family planning legislation in seven countries of the Mediterranean region: Greece, Italy, Morocco, Portugal, Spain, Tunisia, and Turkey. Part 1, a general review, specifically focuses on the role of religion in the development of family planning programs, laws with an indirect effect on family planning (minumum age of marriage, polygamy, divorce, incentives and disincentives), laws with a direct effect on family planning (contraception, voluntary sterilization, induced abortion), and teenagers and family planning (family planning services, voluntary sterilization, induced abortion, sex education). Part 2 contains country profiles of the seven countries involved in the study. Recommendations specific to the country conclude each profile. Part 3 offers conclusions and recommendations regarding legislation with an indirect effect on family planning, legislation with a direct effect on family planning, family planning for adolescents, and conferences. Appendices include a bibliography, a summary of laws affecting family planning, and population facts. (YLB)
