Pregnancy

Abortion

Abort - engelska

An abortion means ending a pregnancy. The Swedish Abortion Act permits free abortion, and it is completely up to you whether or not to have one. A number of different methods can be used to perform an abortion. The main difference between the methods is that you either take tablets or undergo a minor operation.

There are a variety of reasons that you might choose to have an abortion. Regardless of your reason, you have the same right to an abortion as everyone else. Whatever the reason and whether the decision is easy or difficult for you – counselling may still be helpful. Your partner or someone else involved in the situation might benefit from counselling as well.

Having an abortion does not mean it will be more difficult to become pregnant again in the future.
