Big Families First in Hungary

“Hungary’s ever increasing support for families by the government is creating an environment where marriages and families are flourishing and abortion numbers are dropping, one of the country’s ministers advised a recent international conference on life and family.

The support has caused abortion numbers to plunge by more than a third of what they were in 2010 (40,449 to 28,500). It has also caused a plunge in the number of divorces (23,873 in 2010 to 18,600 in 2017) and a surge in the number of marriages (35,520 in 2010 to 50,600 in 2017).

‘A precondition of the medium and long-term social development and the sustainability of Hungary is a lasting turn in demographic trends,’ Katalin Novàk, Hungarian Minister of State for the Family, Youth and International Affairs, said.

‘The objective can be achieved with a stable, complex, targeted and flexible family policy that is capable of adapting to changing needs and conditions,’ she added.”
