☷ COUNTRY-SPECIFIC CHARACTERISTICS
Women have to give written consent.
Abortion is taught during health care professionals’ (HCPs’) medical studies.
Physicians have the right to conscientiously object, except in case of medical emergency (new law on Provision of Health Care of 1992 and revision of the Code of Medical Ethics). About 3% of them counscientiously objected in 2015.
Both surgical and medical abortions are free of charge for resident women and for insured (Health national social security) non-resident women. Non-resident women who are not insured have to pay 150 € for medical abortion and 400 € for surgical abortion.
