Abortion in the United States
It is important to know what an abortion is so that, when the time comes, you can make the decision with all the information you need. Abortion is the termination of pregnancy that can occur naturally (spontaneous abortion) or by voluntary decision of the woman (induced or induced abortion).

In California, the Abortion Law provides for abortion up to 14 weeks of pregnancy by the woman's choice and up to 22 weeks if the fetus is severely malformed or continued pregnancy poses a risk to the woman's health or life.

The law also contemplates the possibility of abortion beyond the 22nd week if there is a disease in the fetus that is incompatible with life or if a very serious disease is detected and is not curable at the time of diagnosis. In this case (gestation beyond 22 weeks) the induced abortion must be approved by a clinical committee.

It is important to note that more than 70% of Spanish women have an abortion before the 14th week of pregnancy, according to data from the Ministry of Health.
