he French government should create an official website to provide women with “correct” information about abortion, and consider expanding the law to allow criminal prosecutions against websites that provide information on abortion from a pro-life perspective, according to a new report submitted by the French “High Council for Equality, Women and Men” (HCEfh), to the country’s minister for women’s rights. The report was commissioned by the minister, Najat Vallaud-Belkacem, last April, in order to assess women’s access to abortion services, which president François Hollande promised to improve during his election campaign last year. Mrs Vallaud-Belkacem drew particular attention to the visibility of websites that are “hostile” to abortion, which often appear at the top of search results.
