Guernsey abortion laws to be 'modernised' by States
24 June 2020
Abortion in Guernsey is set to be "modernised", following the States approval of amending the law. The reforms to the 1997 law include extending gestational time limits and allowing one doctor to sign off an abortion.
The limit will double to 24 weeks and no limits will apply in case of "significant" foetal abnormalities. The changes also decriminalise terminating a pregnancy outside of a medical setting.
