Abortion in Ecuador

Currently abortion in Ecuador is illegal except in case of threat to the life or health of the woman, or if the pregnancy is the result of the violation of a diminished psychic or demented woman. The penalty for a woman who has an abortion is one to five years in prison and the penalty for a doctor or other person performing the procedure is two to five years. 1
