The purpose of this article is to analyse the decision rendered by the European Committee of Social Rights in the case CGIL v. Italy, published on 11 April, 2016, concerning access to abortion services in Italian hospitals. The decision, which has not received much attention by legal scholarship, is of utmost interest for the affirmation of womenʼs right to reproductive health. I will argue that this decision contributes to the affirmation of Statesʼ positive̶and not merely negative̶obligation to grant women access to safe abortion services.
