A warm hello to all readers! Any women or girl readers from Sharjah or anywhere else in the UAE? If yes, then this post carries some useful and helpful information. Go on!
Since abortion in the UAE is illegal and restricted only for married women in events to save their lives or in case of fetal anomalies, many unmarried girls and married women are resorting to unsafe abortions for unwanted pregnancies.
One such method that these women think of as the easiest and probably the cheapest is buying abortion pills. Since abortion pills in UAE cannot be availed of legally, they seek help from illegal suppliers online. Or sometimes they avail of contact numbers of such kind of suppliers and avail of abortion pills at a huge cost.
And this cost of an abortion is not just in Dirham (Dhs), but in terms of lost health and sometimes even life.
Women’s reproductive health is important and so are their rights regardless of their native countries, religions, castes, creeds or any other distinguishing factor. Sadly, but truly, very little recognition is given to this topic in many parts of the world. And therefore, abortions as part of women’s reproductive health are not governed by equivalent rules in all the countries alike.
Whenever it comes to an unplanned pregnancy to a woman in Sharjah, Dubai or other parts of the UAE, they find themselves in difficult situations and that too, multi-faceted.
Are you too in such a situation and seeking methods to opt-out of unwanted pregnancy?
If yes, read this post to know your safe and healthy abortion in Sharjah options.
If you are a woman living in the Middle East countries like in any part of the UAE ( Dubai, Ajman, Sharjah, Fujairah, Ras-Al-Khaimah, Abu Dhabi, Khor Fakkan, Al Ain, Umm Al Quwain, Dibba Al-Fujairah) or in Oman, Qatar, Kuwait or Bahrain then you probably know how difficult it is for women living in these countries to avail safe and legal abortion services due to restricted abortion laws.
Abortion laws are different in all countries, from highly restricted to highly selective.
In the UAE, as a part of section 340 of the UAE penal code, abortion is legal only in circumstances where:
And this is only available for women who are married and they are required to provide their marriage certificate as proof.
Another problem is the permissible gestation age for abortion. Even in the aforementioned situations, abortion is permissible only up to 17 weeks of gestation, i.e., up to 120 days of pregnancy.
Therefore, women who get pregnant as a result of contraceptive failure have no legal option available for safe abortion in UAE. But they are not alone.
Just like in the UAE, there are several other countries where women do not have full reproductive rights.
Expat, Indian and Filipino women often travel to Bangalore, India to avail a safe and legal abortion in India.
