Abstract: Induced abortion up to ten completed weeks has been legal in Portugal since April 2007. In 1984 and 1997,two laws decriminalised abortion in three different situations: (1) For maternal indications (up to 12 completed weeks); (2) For fetal indications (up to 16 completed weeks since 1984, and up to 24 completed weeks since 1997); (3) In case of rape, renamed since 1997 ‘crime against sexual freedom’ (up to 12 completed weeks between 1984 and 1997, up to 16 completed weeks since then).
