HANNES SWOBODA (PRESIDENT OF THE S&D GROUP) SAYING (ENGLISH): "Abortion happened a lot and will continue to happen a lot, but the real question is: should we push women into illegality with all the health risks for women that it implies, or can women decide to do it where and when they want to do it, under medical supervision, with less health risks, or no health risk at all. This is the real question." 10. CUTAWAY: HANNES SWOBODA TALKING DURING THE PRESS CONFERENCE 11.
