Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Abortion in Colombia is currently illegal except in case of the threat to life or health of the woman, if the pregnancy is the result of rape, or when the fetus is expected to die after birth because of severe fetal abnormalities. It was completely illegal until 2006, when legislation was passed making it legal in the above circumstances.[1]

The punishment for a woman who has an illegal abortion is up to 3 years in prison and the punishment for a doctor or other person who performs the procedure illegally (even if medically licensed to do so) is also up to 3 years.[2]
