- If an abortion is medically necessary to save the life of the woman.
- If continuing the pregnancy will cause grave and long-lasting damage to the physical health of the woman.
- If the pregnancy was the result of a sexual assault or incest. The crime must also be reported to the law enforcement authorities.
A doctor must sign a written statement attesting to one of the above situations.
