Abortion law Guinea-Bissau

Background

Abortion on-demand is illegal in Guinea-Bissau. It is permitted only to save the life of the pregnant woman (Penal Code, Art. 112). In this instance, the procedure must be performed in a hospital within the first three months of pregnancy, with the consent of the spouse, a tutor (in the case of Muslim mothers), or a legal representative if the woman is unmarried. See Penal code.
