EVALUATION TERMINATION OF PREGNANCY ACT
THE LAW
Under the Termination of Pregnancy Act abortion is non-punishable in The Netherlands, provided that specific conditions are met and restrictions observed. It thereby creates a degree of leeway for help to women in an emergency situation as a result of an unwanted pregnancy, with due regard for the protection of unborn human life.
