BRUSSELS, Belgium — The European Parliament voted Thursday in favor of a report describing abortion as “essential healthcare” and seeking to redefine conscientious objection as a “denial of medical care.” Members of the European Parliament, the EU’s law-making body, voted on June 24 by 378 votes in favor, 255 against and 42 abstentions, to adopt the text, known as the Matić Report, at a plenary session in Brussels, Belgium. The report also declares that violations of “sexual and reproductive health and rights” are “a form of violence against women and girls.” Parliamentarians had earlier rejected two attempts to block the controversial report.
