Prior to the 2015 reform of the abortion law, girls between the ages of 16 and 18 who wanted to have an abortion did not need the consent of their parents, although they had to inform them of their decision, unless they alleged coercion, family violence or ill-treatment .

However, after this reform, all girls under the age of 18 years can only abort with the express consent of the parents or legal guardians, who must also accompany her throughout the process of termination of pregnancy. There are cases where both parents can not accompany the child so the parent can make a unique legal representation or with the consent of one to the other parent.

That is why it is important that you know how to communicate your decision to abort. If you do not know how to do it, you can go to a Voluntary Interruption of Pregnancy Clinic (IVE) to get advice, and even the social worker can act as mediator with your parents or guardians.

Once the decision is made, it can be aborted by Social Security or private. In order to be able to abort by Social Security, it is required to be Spanish, or foreigner with legal status, Spain and health card. If these requirements are not met, the social worker of Sergine Médica will help you to process it so that the interruption of the pregnancy has no cost to you and no obstacle, even if you only had a passport or another irregular situation. You must go directly to our legal clinic for Interruption of Pregnancy (IVE). We are accredited for this in the Ministry of Health of the Community of Madrid.
