Coronavirus update: Abortion Support Network is closely monitoring the rapidly changing situation. As long as borders and clinics remain open, we will help those who are able to safely travel access abortions abroad. We will also provide information on safe abortion pills for home use where appropriate. If you need an abortion, please get in touch and we will help you as much as we are able. Coronavirus is simply YET ANOTHER obstacle faced by people living in countries with inadequate provision of abortion services.

Big Give Christmas Challenge for Abortion Without Borders

We are taking part in the Big Give Christmas Challenge 2021 to raise money for Abortion Without Borders.  Every donation made between 30 November and 7 December will be doubled, thanks to match funding from an ASN supporter.  

This means, with Gift Aid, a £25 donation becomes £56.25 for Abortion Without Borders, without any additional cost to you.

Abortion Without Borders provides information, resources and support for people in Poland who need help to access abortion care.  

Every week we help hundreds of people to access the care they need, either at home with pills or by supporting them to travel for a procedure in another country. Since October 2020, when Poland indicated it would criminalise abortion even in cases of severe and fatal foetal abnormality, we have financially supported 1,080 people to travel for an abortion in a clinic in another country.  

For so many people in Poland, our helpline is the only way out of a life-threatening pregnancy. And it’s only because of support from the public – amazing people like you – that we can help people who need it.

We recently helped Natalya*, who contacted us when she was 19 weeks pregnant. Her partner was out of work and they couldn’t afford another child – and she had been diagnosed with a serious medical condition that doctors said made it too dangerous for her to fly to another country for an abortion.  

She was terrified – terrified of being forced to carry a pregnancy to term, and terrified that the pregnancy and delivery could kill her. The law in Poland meant she was left alone to figure out what to do next. Then she called Abortion Without Borders.  

We translated her medical records, and talked to her about how to organise a procedure in another country. Her and her partner decided the best option was to drive to Spain, after we helped arrange the abortion in a hospital there.  

After driving for two days, Natalya was able to get the abortion she needed, and returned home safely. She was able to pay for the travel and accommodation, and Abortion Without Borders covered the €2,000 cost of the procedure.  

Donations mean we can be a lifeline for people like Natalya. Can you help us?
