Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Abortion in Venezuela is currently illegal except in cases of a threat to the life of the pregnant woman. The punishment for a woman who has an abortion otherwise is six months to 2 years in prison and the punishment for a doctor or other person who performs the procedure is 1 to 3 years. Harsher penalties may be applied if the pregnant woman dies as a result of the procedure. [1]

In May of 2006, Pope Benedict met with President Chavez and expressed his worry over the possibility that Chavez would loosen abortion laws in Venezuela. [2]
