Swedes may offer abortions to foreign women

"Sweden, which already has one of the world's most liberal abortion laws, should loosen restrictions further by allowing non-residents access to the procedure, according to a government-commissioned report.
'We suggest that foreign women be allowed to have abortions in Sweden,' head of the study Eva Eriksson told reporters in Stockholm.

The Scandinavian country has since the mid-1970s offered free abortions up until the 18th week of pregnancy -- no questions asked -- making it one of the world's most liberal countries on the issue."
