Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Abortion in Panama is currently illegal except in case of the threat to life or health of the woman, or if the pregnancy is the result of rape. In 1982, a penal code was enacted which sustains to this day. The punishment for a woman who has an illegal abortion is 1 to 3 years in prison and the punishment for a doctor or other person who performs the procedure with her consent is 3 to 6 years. If the procedure is done without her consent the punishment is 5 to 10 years.[1]
