Abortion in Andorra is banned except in cases where it is necessary to save the life of a pregnant woman.

A woman who performs an abortion on herself or gives consent to another person to perform an abortion is subject to up two and a half years imprisonment. A person who performs an abortion with the consent of a pregnant woman is subject to imprisonment up to four years; if she or he is a medical practitioner and aborted the child for financial profit, the maximum penalty is six years in prison. If termination of pregnancy is performed without consent of the pregnant woman, the maximum penalty is ten years in prison. If a pregnant woman dies due to an abortion, the maximum penalty is 12 years in prison.[1][2]
