(ANSA)- San Marino, September 19 - The tiny state of San
Marino's Grand and General Council has rebuffed proposals for
decriminalising abortion and recognising same sex marriage
celebrated abroad.
The Council rejected on Thursday and Friday a formal
request by citizens to the Captains Regent, effectively the
country's heads of state, urging that abortion no longer be a
crime and demanding the recognition of gay 'marriages'
celebrated abroad.
The council nevertheless agreed to consider aspects of the
questions again, though 27 members voted against legalising
abortion compared with 23 voting in favour, while two abstained
and one MP did not vote.
By a slightly larger majority the Council decided to verify
within three months "eventual modifications to the criminal
code, to define as the non prosecutability of those who decide
to abort in the countries where it is allowed".
Abortion would remain a crime in San Marino under this
proposal, however.
A larger still majority rejected by 35 votes against to 15
votes in favour the proposal for recognition of same sex
weddings held abroad.
