Abortion law Andorra


From the UN report on Andorra:

...under the general criminal law principles of necessity, an abortion can be performed to save the life of the pregnant woman.  According to the Code, a pregnant woman who performs an abortion or consents to an abortion will incur a penalty of up to two and one-half years of imprisonment. If another person performs an abortion with the consent of the woman, the maximum applicable penalty will be four years’ imprisonment.  The penalty will be imprisonment for up to six years if the perpetrator is a physician, medical practitioner or health officer, or a person who customarily, or with the intent of profit, performs abortive practices.  An abortion performed without the consent of the woman is punishable by a maximum of 10 years’ imprisonment. If abortive practices performed on a woman actually or supposedly pregnant result in serious injuries or the death of the woman, the maximum applicable penalty will be 12 years’ imprisonment.  Any person offering his own or another's services for the performance of an abortion or providing means or suggesting abortive procedures is subject to up to three years’ imprisonment.
