Before an Abortion

We recognize that the decision of undergoing an abortion is not an easy, which is why we strive to maintain the privacy of our patients and make this process as smooth and comfortable as possible.

We recognize the anxiety of our patients and we hope to put their minds at ease even as they entrust us to close an unhappy chapter of their lives and empower them to move forward.

Legal Guidelines on Abortion in Singapore:
  • Abortion is legal in Singapore up to 24 weeks, unless the woman’s health is jeopardized
  • Parental consent is not legally required for women and girls above 14 years old
  • Women must undergo mandatory counselling and wait at least a day before confirming to go for the procedure
  • For girls below 16 years old but above 14 years old, counselling at the Health Promotion Board is required prior to undergoing the procedure
  • For girls below 14 years old, there will be no medical confidentiality as it is considered statutory rape for a male to have sex with a girl below 14 years old
Foreigners may only obtain an abortion in Singapore if any of the following conditions are met:
  • They have a valid work permit or employment pass
  • They have stayed in Singapore for at least 4 months
  • They are married to a Singaporean or are a PR
  • Their lives will be endangered if an abortion is not immediately performed
When to Get an Abortion

As foetal size increases rapidly over the weeks, it is highly recommended to decide on an abortion as early in the pregnancy as possible, as it is much safer and simpler with less risks. The method of abortion also differs depending on how advanced the pregnancy is, which your gynaecologist and abortion surgeon in Singapore will advise you on.
