Abortion in Colombia was decriminalized in 2006 by the Constitutional Court with the C-355 sentence in three circumstances with no gestational age limit:
*Health is understood in a comprehensive manner, including mental and physical health as well as life project.
**Women are the ones who determine when a pregnancy represents risk
MVA and MA: Providers in Colombia have to be medical doctors who are general practitioners with no requirement for OBG&N
Private organizations such as Oriéntame and others
Abortion is included in the healthcare plan and should be paid by the insurance company where women are afﬁliated. However, access barriers are still high. Many women resort to private services and the cost depends on the gestational age. In practical terms, a ﬁrst trimester abortion through MVA costs between U$150 and U$ 250, on average.
