Abortion in Cambodia

Abortion in Cambodia is legal upon request within the first twelve weeks of pregnancy.[1]

After twelve weeks, abortions are only legal in Cambodia when they will save the woman's life or preserve her health, the pregnancy is a result of rape, or the child may be born with an incurable disease.[1] In any of these instances, at least two medical personnel must approve the abortion.[1]
