 Aciria Yes As per the Population Growth Act, women are expected to give birth to at least two children in their lifetime. Children expected to have major birth defects are encouraged to be aborted due to the economic constraints it might bring to the nation.

 Austro-Caldera
 Burgundie Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Becoming legal in the 1950s as a result of the Burgoignesc Women’s Liberation movement, induced abortion has faded from general discourse because of its wide acceptance and vast popular support. Access is guaranteed by law and is available at most hospitals that provide maternal-fetal medicine. The government of Burgundie does not specify when in the gestation process a fetus becomes a person. The medical community has determined that they will not usually conduct abortions after the conclusion of the second trimester out of consideration of the health of the mother. Due to the flexibility of the law, extreme circumstances may warrant an abortion at any time, even in the third trimester.
 Caphiria No Yes
 Carna
 Cartadania Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Legalized nationwide in all capacities in September 1960, the topic of abortion was bought forth to the federal court system, and subsequently Congress, following the Burgoignesc Women’s Liberation movement. Cartadania's strong ties with Burgundie and Burgoignacs living within its territory saw a push towards modernity. Prior to, induced abortion legality was determined by the state in which the procedure was performed. It has since become a rare topic of discussion and is typically just considered another medical option. Access is guaranteed by law and is available at most hospitals that provide maternal-fetal medicine and most local clinics. It is performed on the informed consent model during the "open window" (first 18 weeks) and as needed thereafter, although most facilities will not usually conduct abortions after the conclusion of the second trimester out of consideration of the health of the mother. Despite this, because there is no law in place on when a fetus becomes a person, extreme circumstances may warrant an abortion at any time, even in the third trimester, although this is quite rare.
 Daxia Abortion is only permitted in cases of grave risk to the life of the mother, instances of rape and in cases where the child would be born with genetic defects or developmental issues.
 Eldmora-Regulus Yes The Volksforum passed an amended Abortion Regulation Act in 2010 that banned on request abortions and socio-economic factors abortions in lieu for improved sex education on schools, and pregnancy resources, as well as the option to put the child up for adoption.
 Faneria Yes Fhainnin abortion law bans abortion in most cases except those with a medical risk to the mother or 'major congenital defects' as decided by an arbitration board. Functionally, the bar for medical risk is forgiving, including a range of health conditions from PCOS to morbid obesity to immune deficiency disorders to transmittable chronic diseases. Parents may opt to revoke their parental rights and give the child up for adoption.
 Fiannria Yes Maybe No No
 Hendalarsk
 Kiravia Yes Maybe Abortions are illegal by default. The governing principle from Cultivated Law is that abortion if permissible only if necessitated by a "superseding iatric duty of the highest gravity". Although jurisprudence has not precisely elucidated the outer boundaries of this exception, the two schools of thought are "life only" (justified only for lifesaving operations) and "life and limb" (justifiable also to prevent permanently debilitating bodily injury). Many provinces are "life only" by statute; Fariva and military law are "life and limb" by statute. In domestic cases only the person performing the procedure is criminally responsible. Abortion tourism is prohibited, and is prosecutable under both the passport law (in federal court) and extraterritorial jurisdiction for Kiravian nationals (federal or provincial court).

 Puertego Yes Abortion is almost completely illegal in Puertego and has been for as long as the practice has existed with any woman who gets one for circumstances that aren't her dying from having the child resulting in her being tried with murder and the same going for any woman who travels to a different country to get one.
