By law, abortion procedures in Singapore are legal, provided that the pregnancy does not exceed 24 weeks. Terminating pregnancies after 24 weeks is prohibited, unless such procedures are necessary to preserve the health or life of the mother.
Methods used to induce abortion vary depending on the stage of pregnancy. The further along the pregnancy, the higher the risk of complications, and the more complex the procedure will be. Therefore it is highly recommended to make a decision as early as possible.
