Abortion Laws and Policies
Abortion on request is not authorized. It is permitted up to the limit of viability if the pregnancy endangers the woman or person's health or life.
Minors are required to obtain parental or adult consent for an abortion.
A married person needs spousal consent to proceed with their abortion request.
Penal law criminalizes women and pregnant people for doing an abortion outside of the legal conditions specified in the law. Abortion providers and any people assisting may be criminalized for an abortion outside of the legal conditions specified in the law.
Medical practitioners and providers have the right to refuse abortion services based on personal beliefs. However, medical practitioners and providers are obligated to refer individuals to another provider if they refuse service. So-called conscientious objection cannot be practiced in emergencies and in the event that they fail to fulfill their humanitarian duties.

- Have an abortion with the pill Misoprostol only.
