Up to how many weeks can you have an abortion?

Abortion is allowed in Belgium up to 12 weeks of pregnancy. This corresponds to 14 weeks if you start counting from the first day of your last period. After a pregnancy term of 12 weeks, abortion is only possible in Belgium if the pregnancy is a serious threat to the woman’s health or if it has been established that the child will have an extremely serious and incurable defect.

An abortion later than 12 weeks after conception without these reasons is not allowed in Belgium. In countries like the Netherlands and Great Britain, it is. If you are in such a situation, you can go to the LUNA centres for a consultation, information and possible referral to a clinic abroad.
