"I think it [the bill] is rather good, as it includes new things, such as medication-induced termination of pregnancy, as the procedures are put in a very correct and clear manner, there is only one con – we do not have legal regulation yet," Health Minister Rimantė Šalaševičiūtė told BNS on Thursday.
She said the document was drafted by her predecessor Vytenis Povilas Andriukaitis who is about to take a position at the European Commission.
Before signing the document, Šalaševičiūtė intends to hold public hearings.
Up until now, termination of pregnancy in Lithuania has not been regulated by law but rather a decree signed by the health minister.
