WOW Abortion Ship Update

Women on Waves had hoped to take Portuguese women with an unwanted pregnancy on board its ship and supply them with the abortion pill in international waters, where it can operate under Dutch legislation.

Refused entry to its waters, the abortion ship remained off the coast of Portugal in international waters from some two weeks in a tense standoff with the Portuguese navy, but Women on Waves decided on 9 September to bring the ship back home.
