Abortion Certificate A

A completed form which is required under the Abortion Act 1967 before an abortion can be legally performed in the UK. It is filled out by two medically-qualified doctors—ideally the GP and the other the consultant gynaecologist who is to perform the procedure.
Certificate A certifies that
(A) The continuance of the pregnancy would involve risk to the life of the pregnant woman greater than if the pregnancy were terminated
(B) The termination is necessary to prevent grave permanent injury to the physical or mental health of the pregnant woman
(C) The pregnancy has NOT exceeded its 24th week and that the continuance of the pregnancy would involve risk, greater than if the pregnancy were terminated, of injury to the physical or mental health of the pregnant woman
(D) The pregnancy has NOT exceeded its 24th week and that the continuance of the pregnancy would involve risk, greater than if the pregnancy were terminated, of injury to the physical or mental health of any existing child(ren) of the family of the pregnant woman
(E) There is a substantial risk that if the child were born it would suffer from such physical or mental abnormalities as to be seriously handicapped.
