The Federal Council of Medicine (CFM) decided to support the termination of pregnancy until the 12th week of pregnancy. Based on ethical, epidemiological, social and legal entity supports maintaining abortion as a crime, but believes that the law should be revised. A document will be sent to the Senate committee responsible for reform of the Penal Code with the changes suggested by the doctor.

According to the president of the CFM, Luiz Roberto Avila d, it is important to stress that no decision be medical advice in favor of abortion, but rather to empower women and physician. In this sense, medical organizations agree with the proposal still under consideration in the Congress, said. He said the councils are opposed to abortion, which remains a crime.

D According to Avila, the goal is to advance this debate within Congress, specifically, and society, always with the intent to qualify the practice of medicine and improve the quality of health care offered to Brazilians.

By understanding the medical councils, with the approval of the points proposed by the reform of the Penal Code will not be called decriminalization of abortion. The causes that are created are exclusive of illegality. That is, only in the cases specified in the project in Congress termination of pregnancy will not configure crime. Acts committed outside that scope should be penalized.

For most, the medical councils agreed that the reform of the Penal Code, which is still awaiting a vote, must refrain from unlawful interruption of pregnancy in the following situations: a) when there is risk to life or health of the mother, b) if pregnancy results from sexual violation of dignity, employment or not consented to assisted reproduction technique, c) if it is proven anencephaly or when the fetus suffers from severe and incurable defects that impede independent living, in either case attested by two doctors, and d) is at the discretion of pregnant until the 12th week of pregnancy.

The conclusion of the Board of Medicine is that with the approval of this project the crime of abortion will continue to exist, will be created only excluding other causes of illegality. Therefore, only in the cases specified in the project in Congress that termination of pregnancy will not configure crime.
