Abortion law Israel

The current Israeli legislation states that abortion is legal under four circumstances

  • The woman is under marriage age (17) or over 40, or during army service
  • Pregnancy results of a relationship forbidden by criminal law, rape, incest, or out of wedlock (any unmarried woman, single, divorced or widow, is legally entitled to an abortion)
  • The child is likely to have a physical or mental defect
  • Continuation of pregnancy may endanger the life of the woman or is likely to cause the woman physical or mental harm
