Abortion procedure using medicine or surgical procedure legal or not in malaysia for married couple.Asking for family planning matters

Dr Ramzdhan 23 months

  • Hi, thank you for the question. Currently, Malaysia does not legalized abortion under its law, either it was done in medical or surgical procedure. It is still a taboo topic in malaysia. As we know, abortion refers to the deliberate termination of human pregnancy. Abortion is only allowed when there is medical reasons that causes harm to the mother and this abortion can help to preserve her mental and physical health.

  • For your information, termination of pregnancy is still prohibited if it was the result of rape, fetal impairment, economic or social reasons. It is a arguable topic as there is the pro-choice group and pro-life group. For the pro-choice group, it supports women to make their own reproductive decisions whether to carry on the pregnancy of not. For the pro-life group, abortion is a cruel act that murders the fetus that has the right to live. There are lots of debates and concerns sparked off among the community regarding this topic.

  • It is important for you to be aware of the possible legal issue related to abortion. Abortion can bring physical and psychological side effects to the woman. Woman may experience uterine scarring, bleeding, infection and worst case death during a abortion procedure. Psychological stress and mental disorder can happened with the woman due to guilt, loss and grief over her death fetus.

  • As for family planning, there are various effective contraception methods that is available currently. The common contraception methods include condom, oral contraceptive pill, intrauterine contraceptive device and injections. They have pros and cons and it should be discussed with your doctor to make an informed decision. Termination of pregnancy is an arguable medical ethical issue, possible in the future things may change or remain the same. Have a good day !!!
