He Ministry of Health Japan approved the use abortion pillthe first, which can be used legally in the country in response to popular demand for more reproductive rights and following the recommendation of a committee of experts.

This decision was taken at a time when the Prime Minister’s government, Fumio Kishidais developing a plan of action as part of an “unprecedented” effort to increase the birth rate in a country where fewer than 800,000 children were born last year, the lowest since 1899, when authorities began keeping counts.
