Abortion in the Netherlands

Abortion is a sensitive and complex subject in the Netherlands. It is important to continue to communicate openly and respectfully about this subject, so that women who are faced with the choice of whether or not to have an abortion can find the right support in this. In the Netherlands, abortion is legal. This is not always the case in surrounding countries. Therefore, many women travel abroad to the Netherlands for abortion.

Until what week is abortion possible in the Netherlands?

At Abortion Clinics Amsterdam & Haarlem, it is possible to perform an abortion up to 22 weeks of pregnancy. Terminating an unwanted pregnancy, also known as an unwanted pregnancy, can be a difficult decision and it is important that it is your own choice.

We recommend that women take their time, think about it carefully and talk about it with someone you can trust. You can always contact the FIOM, especially if you are on your own. 

Our abortion clinics offer different types of treatment depending on how far the pregnancy has progressed. For women who have had unprotected intercourse less than 5 days ago, a copper IUD can also be placed in the uterus to prevent the pregnancy from growing and protect against another pregnancy. The cost of abortion treatment is covered under the Long-Term Care Act if you live/work in the Netherlands. You remain anonymous during treatment at the clinic.

Going to the Netherlands for an abortion

Since the introduction of the Termination of Pregnancy Act in 1984, it has been possible to legally have an abortion in the Netherlands up to 24 weeks of pregnancy, however, most clinics maintain and deadline of 22 weeks.

Since abortion laws in the Netherlands are more liberal in the Netherlands, the clinic receives women from several countries; France, Poland, Germany, etc. Some women sometimes have to travel long distances for treatment. Women from abroad can visit the clinic in Haarlem, Heemstede. Easy to reach by car or public transport. Close to Schiphol Airport. After treatment, active participation in traffic is not an option. An overnight stay nearby is then recommended.
