Danish women are increasingly travelling to countries like Sweden and the UK to have abortions. Last year, 21 Danish women in their 16th, 17th or 18th week of pregnancy had abortions in Sweden, reports Kristeligt Dagblad. Meanwhile, 75 Danish women had abortions in the UK between 2012 and 2016.
In Denmark, abortions are only permitted during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy, but in special circumstances the limit is raised to 22 weeks.
