“I’m just coming back after surgery. I would like to thank you very much for your help, because it was only thanks to you that all this was possible. I will be grateful to you for this until the end of my life.” – Abortion Without Borders client, 2022
Abortion care in Poland is almost completely inaccessible. People who need abortions are forced to figure out how to get to clinics in other countries and come up with the funds – or find help to get the care they need. In cases of serious foetal indication, couples face the stress of travelling alongside the trauma of grieving a much-wanted but unviable pregnancy. Every day, four women leave Poland for an abortion overseas, and 90 access safe abortion with pills.
From midday on Tuesday 28 November until midday 5 December, donations made through the Big Give Christmas Challenge will be doubled at no extra cost to you – which means every penny of support will have double the impact. We are raising funds for Abortion Without Borders, a partnership providing information, advice and financial support to people in Poland who need abortions. As Abortion Without Borders enters its 5th year of this work, we are being contacted by thousands of people who need help.
