Portugal prepares to hold a referendum on easing its abortion law on 11 February.
More than 50% of registered voters must cast their ballots for the referendum to be valid. A similar referendum was ruled invalid in 1998 because of a low turnout. Portugal's Socialist Prime Minister, Jose Socrates, called the new referendum in October, 2006.
