Termination of Pregnancy and Abortion in Italy

Italy legalized abortion in 1978. Any woman in Italy has 90 days (12 weeks) from the date of conception to request a termination of pregnancy.

Under the law, the termination must be due to health, economic, social or family reasons. A pregnant woman must get proof as to the state of the pregnancy from her local doctor (general practitioner) or from a maternal health care clinic, which will then make the appointments with the hospital.

An abortion may only be carried out in a public hospital. It is free to women who have an Italian health card; foreign women have to pay for the procedure. There are no special abortion clinics in Italy.

You are very early in the pregnancy so you will likely qualify for a medical termination of pregnancy rather than surgery. The medical termination is done by pills given over a specific time period and is a safe and much less expensive option.

The only information I could find is that you need to find a public hospital to have the procedure.
