Can you have an abortion at 5 months of pregnancy?

By Victoria Moliner.
Last Update: 01/11/2019

With 5 months of pregnancy, abortion is possible only if the pregnancy is a life-threatening factor for the woman or compromises her health severely. Also, if developmental abnormalities that are incompatible with life are detected in the fetus. A pregnancy can be terminated for these reasons up until week 22.

For a voluntary termination of pregnancy to be free of risks can be performed only until week 14.
