Rules of Abortion in US VS GCC countries

Abortion is an illegal act if you are performing it willfully in a liberal country like the US. Similarly, the same rule is executed in all GCC countries. It might be possible under some circumstances, like if the mother or fetus’s life poses a huge threat. 

This article will guide you on the rules of abortion in US or GCC countries and in what cases this callous act is legal?

Legal rules of Abortion in the US

About 5 years ago, Donald Trump pledged to appoint Supreme Court judges who would overturn Roe v Wade, the 1973 ruling establishing the right to abortion. 13 cities of US implemented the “trigger laws” that banned abortions if Roe were ruled unconstitutional. The law, signed by Florida governor Ron DeSantis, severely restricts abortion access after 15 weeks of pregnancy.

As per this law, if the women abort their fetus willfully, she will be either prisoned for 5-6 years in some states. While others put a penalty of $10,000-100,000 on this illegal act. 

Legal rules of Abortion in GCC countries

As per article 340 of Federal Law No. 3 of 1987, the criminal act of abortion is defined. The law states:

“Wilful abortionists are subject to a maximum punishment of five years in prison if they give drugs or use any other means that lead to the termination of her pregnancy. Upon committing the offence without consent will be sentenced to seven years in prison according to Khaleej Times.

Concluding the rules of Abortion in US VS GCC countries

Like US or GCC countries, many other states are deemed this act illegal. Also, doing such kinds of actions may pose a mother’s life in danger. If you get pregnant and wish to marry the child’s father, it’s better to come up with the easiest way of marriage. Those couples can conduct the marriage in Georgia, Seychelles or online and get an official marriage certificate in less time.
