Termination of pregnancy

Abortion (or 'termination of a pregnancy') is the removal or expulsion of an embryo or fetus, effectively ending the pregnancy.


As the law stands in the UK it is legal for a woman to have an induced abortion up to 24 weeks into a pregnancy though many hospitals or clinics will not consider a termination beyond 18 to 20 weeks. 


There are three methods for termination of pregnancy:

  • abortion pill
  • Surgical termination 
  • medical termination
