What if Malaysia… Legalises Abortion (On-Demand)? #4

What If Malaysia is an 8 episode miniseries where we explore what Malaysia could look like with certain progressive ideas, concepts and policies. Abortion in Malaysia is technically legal, but only in cases when a medical practitioner deems that continuing the pregnancy poses a danger to the mother's life, physical health, and mental well-being. On this episode of What if Malaysia, we explore what Malaysia could look like if we legalise abortion (on-demand).
