But abortion law is very restrictive. According to Thai law, women can only receive abortions under special conditions, like endangerment to life or rape. Reasons like social/economic factors or general choice are not permitted. However, this law is not entirely enforced, and there are an estimated 15 abortion clinics in Thailand. There is only one known hospital in Bangkok that practices safe abortions with little restrictions, so please visit the 'Abortion' section for details.
