Every female citizen from European Union may legally undego an artifical abortion in the Czech Republic, even in the case they would come intentionally for this purpose only and spend some few days here.
The whole issue of the artificial pregnancy interruption in the Czech Republic is governed by the law ČNR 66/1986 Sb. and the regulation of the Ministry of Health 75/1986 Sb. Principally it says that the pregnangy, in accordance with a woman´s desire, can be interrupted till the end of the 12th week of the pregnancy since the first day of the last menstruation. The pregnancy interruption must be applied for in a special form in which the woman will confirm with her signature that she applies for the pregnancy interruption and her attending gynaecologist puts down his/her finding together with the conclusion that the pregnancy may be interrupted. In fact the only reason preventing is the reality that the person has undergone the interruption in less than 6 months ago. This condition is stipulated in the law and does not concern the women with at least two births or who are older than 35 years.
If the applicant is not major the law distinguishes two groups: till 16 years of age the approval of parents or their legal representative is required, after the 16 years of age the woman is entitled to decide about her pregnancy already by herself and approval of her parents is not needed, however, the performance of the intervention should be announced to the parents by the medical clinic additionally.
The artificial pregnancy interruption is not covered by health insurance companies.
Time of the interventions?
The interventions are made every day in the morning hours in three batches. According to the previous agreement the patient comes at 7.45, 10.15 or 11.30. If the performance is planned in the general anaesthesia it is absolutely necessary that the patient comes with an empty stomach, i.e. at least 8 hours before the performance she must not eat, drink nor smoke! After the finished performance the patient catches up on sleep under the supervision of an anaesthesiologist in the room next to the surgery theatre.
It is highly recommended that the patient has an acompaninment and the transfer by car. It must be taken into account that the rest of anesthetics remains in her organism for some hours and they can lead to reducing the attention. Therefore, the woman after anaesthesia must not drive a motor car for the whole day! It is also inappropriate to travel by public transport means. If there is no acompaninment after the finished performance we order her a taxi for her.
