Is abortion legal in Cambodia?
Abortion services are legal in Cambodia and are usually done during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. However, there are a few cases that allow for an abortion to be conducted after 12 weeks. In order for an abortion service be provided after the 12th week, the case must fall under at least one of the following circumstances:
- The pregnancy is developing abnormally thus risking the woman’s life.
- The child, after birth, is at risk of a serious and incurable disease.
- The pregnancy is a result of rape.
