Until 2007, abortion was only legal in cases of rape or incest. In 2007 voters pushed for a new law which would enable women to obtain abortions within the first ten weeks of pregnancy. However, as a strong Catholic country, many doctors may still refuse to perform abortions (link).

The law states (translated) - n. 1 of article 142. Penal Code permits termination of pregnancy up to 10 weeks for all pregnant women who request it, must be performed in healthcare facility official or officially recognized. (Link)
