Abortion law in UAE

Anyone who wants an abortion or assists in the abortion of a child is guilty of a federal crime.

Only if the pregnant woman’s or the child’s life is in danger can a pregnancy be terminated at any point. If the kid will not survive after birth, the pregnancy can be terminated if it’s less than 120 days long. A court order may also be used to terminate a pregnancy.

Anyone who aborts a pregnancy or conspires to abort a pregnancy will be prosecuted for a criminal offense.

New laws concerning children born out of wedlock

The most current UAE Penal Law includes a new provision for parenting children born out of wedlock. Anyone who has sexual intercourse with a woman over the age of 18 that results in the birth of a child faces a minimum of two years in prison.

The couple, on the other hand, will not face criminal charges if they marry. Confess joint or separate parental responsibility for the child. And issue the child’s official documents and passport in line with the laws of the country in which either is a national, as well as UAE law.

What’s the best solution for pregnant mothers?

We advise pregnant women to consider other options. Such as marrying the child’s father if the two have already discussed starting a family. Many countries, like Georgia and Seychelles, make it quite simple for couples to fly down and obtain their marriage license in as little as two weeks.
