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.

Get Help – I’m From Russia

We are aware that many people have been displaced from Russia and Ukraine due to the war. We are working with our Abortion Without Borders partners to help as many people as we can who need to access abortoins during this time. 

If you are under 12 weeks pregnant, please visit this website for information on the best way to obtain safe abortion pills and instructions on how to self manage your own abortion. If you are in Poland, it is legal to self manage you own abortion. 

If you are not able to take abortion pills, please contact our Abortion Without Borders helpline. The helpline is open seven days a week from 8 am to 8 pm and there is also email.  

Telephone: +48 22 29 22 598 (08:00 – 20:00)

We will do our best to help you. While we may not have Russian speakers available, we can communicate using online translators. If we cannot help you get an abortion where you are, we will give you the details of one of our partner organisations who will try and help you travel to an abortion clinic somewhere in Europe.  

If you need to travel for an abortion, please speak with us before you book appointments or flights. We can help you arrange the most cost effective and convenient abortion and travel. This is important not only for you, but also so our resources can stretch to help as many people as possible.  

Help Abortion Support Network may be able to offer:  

  • Clinic recommendations 
  • Information about the least expensive way to arrange your travel and procedure 
  • Funding 
  • Help finding accommodation 
  • Advice in multiple languages. Sometimes this will be with a volunteer who speaks the language,  sometimes using an online translator, and sometimes using a phone translation services 

Please call or email us to get more information, or discuss your circumstances. One of our volunteers will respond to emails or voicemails within 48 hours.  We know it might be a little awkward, especially if there are language differences, but we have been helping people travel for abortions for many years and we will hopefully be able to help you.  

About the help we offer  

ASN is here to help lessen the financial burden of travelling abroad to get a safe abortion. Funding is available on a case-by-case basis, depending on your circumstances and availability of funds. Our funds are not unlimited but we try and help as many people as we can. We expect people to arrange the least expensive method of abortion and travel where possible. If a grant is awarded, ASN pays the clinic directly, reducing the amount you pay. We can help you book your appointment if you do not speak the language used at the clinic and we can help you find the least expensive, most convenient way to travel.   

In addition to financial help, we can provide recommendations on clinics and hospitals, as well as any information you might need, including required travel documents, and Covid regulations.  If you have a question about getting from where you are to an abortion clinic, we probably have the answer.
