New Survey Reveals Positive Views on Abortion in Hungary
The Hungarian population continues to support the right to have an abortion, provided that the age of the fetus has not reached the 20th week, according to an Ipsos poll. The polling company included 27 countries in its latest survey.

In Hungary, 70% believe that abortion should be legal in most or all cases, while 14% think that abortion should be illegal in most or all cases. Internationally, the survey found an average of 59% for the former and 26% for the latter.

81% of the adults polled in Hungary said that abortion should be permitted if the pregnancy endangers the woman’s life or health, a result nearly identical with the international average of 80%.

The poll also found that 82% of Hungarians felt that abortion should be legal even in the case of rape, and 81% supported it if the fetus has a serious disability or health issues.

These were noticeably higher than the international averages of 70% and 67%, respectively.

    Hungary, where religion has little hold on society and abortion has been legal since 1992, could almost be considered a country where access to abortion is not a problem at all. Except that it involves two compulsory appointments with a childcare worker and that medical abortion isn’t allowed. As a result, hundreds of Hungarian women have abortions in Vienna every year.
