In recent years, abortion regulations have been tightened in several countries (Poland, USA). As of 15th September 2022, a legislative amendment in Hungary will require women seeking abortion to present a fetal heart sound. This provision is unique in Europe, especially considering that Hungarian law allows essentially anyone to terminate a pregnancy on request. What exactly does the amendment mean? How can we assess this rule: can it be seen as a legitimate measure for the protection of the foetus, and is it in line with international human rights standards?
