Is Vacuum Aspiration Allowed To Abort The Womb?
Good morning, I married early but not legally (sirri), now I am 3 weeks pregnant. I am 19 years old. And mentally I’m still not ready to give birth. If I want to abort my womb by vacuum aspiration. Is it permissible both health and law?
Hello JM, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
In the medical world, there are several ways to abort a pregnancy, but this action is only recommended to be done if there are certain indications that require the abortion to be carried out to maintain the health / safety of the mother or because the fetus does have a very severe disability so it is not possible to be maintained further.
However, if there is no specific indication medically, the abortion of a pregnancy for any reason, including psychological reasons for mothers who are not ready, is not permitted to be carried out and if it is done in violation of Indonesian law.
For your current condition, it is better for you to consult further with a psychologist or psychiatrist to help you with your psychological problems during pregnancy due to abortion is not a good way out, breaking existing laws and can even endanger the safety of the mother.
I hope this helps.
