Unwanted pregnancy?

Unwanted pregnancy?

Are you unsure about continuing or terminating the pregnancy? Such a decision is never taken lightly. In Switzerland, abortion is legal up to week 12 after your last period. If you are uncertain, there are several medical helplines and other psychological counselling services to help you come to a decision. Young women under 16 must see a counsellor or talk to someone at the «Kinder- und Jugendpsychiatrischer Dienst» (Child and Youth Psychiatry Service).
