From Live Action:
To celebrate the new millennium back in the year 2000, the Republic of Croatia minted a coin featuring the image of a preborn child. The fetus – a human being living the first moments of his or her life – is symbolic of new beginnings to the people of Croatia, and therefore was the perfect image to mark the start of the 21st century. Croatia is largely Catholic and abortion is a huge cause of controversy in the nation which holds strict laws against it.
85 percent of Croatians belong to the Catholic faith, and abortion is mostly illegal after 10 weeks of pregnancy. Many Croatians are pushing for abortion to become completely illegal. In 1952, when Croatia was part of Yugoslavia, abortion was legalized. Then in 1974, the Federal Consitution of Yugoslavia stated that the decision of when to have children is a human right and by 1978 a law was established allowing for contraception, sterilization, abortion, and infertility treatments. Thus, essentially declaring that the wants and desires of adults on when and how to create or destroy the lives of their children trump the rights of those children – even their most basic right to life.
