Is Malta ready to decriminalise abortion and stop sending women to jail for it? Lovin Malta took to the busy streets of Valletta to ask the public what they really think.

People of all ages and walks of life were asked their opinion after MP Marlene Farrugia put forward a private member’s bill proposing that abortion be decriminalised in Malta. Currently, a person could face up to three years in jail over the act.
