Slight majority in new poll wants to stick with the existing abortion law

Unlike the other Nordic countries, the Faroe Islands do not offer abortion on demand.

On Friday, 6,186 people provided their answers to the question ‘Should the abortion law be amended?’ in an online poll on news website portal.fo.
