Abortion in Europe

EUROPE IS MUCH
MORE
CONSERVATIVE
THAN PEOPLE THINK

Abortion laws in European countries are often
more restrictive than those in the United States
.

Andorra, Malta and San Marino do not allow abortion at all. Monaco and Liechtenstein allow it only when a woman’s health or life is at risk.

Fifteen European countries, including Italy and Spain, require a mandatory waiting period. In 12 countries, including Hungary and Germany, women must undergo mandatory counselling or receive mandatory information from their doctors before the abortion.

In Germany, abortion can only be done within 12 weeks of conception.
