Help From Other Organisations
ASN can offer financial assistance, accommodation in volunteer homes and confidential, non-judgmental information and advice. However, we are not doctors or counsellors. For medical information, help to make your decision, or early medical abortion pills by post, these organisations may be able to help. This list includes local family planning agencies, abortion clinics in England, The Netherlands and Belgium, and reputable providers of safe but illegal abortion pills. Scroll down.
Family Planning Clinics
Irish Family Planning Association (This is a free service)
Please be aware that there are some rogue family planning ‘clinics’ in Ireland and Northern Ireland that do not provide accurate, impartial information about pregnancy and abortion options, but seek to influence your decision about abortion without disclosing their anti-abortion beliefs. In contrast, the organisations listed above are reputable, unbiased organisations who can talk to you about all of your options when facing a crisis pregnancy.
Isle of Man
Abortion Providers & Clinics in England
The following are organisations that provide abortions. All of these charge discounted prices to women travelling from Ireland and Northern Ireland and some provide a taxi service to and from the nearest airport or train station. Ensure that you ask about discounts and other assistance when booking your appointment with the clinic.
Clinics we work with:
Click on “Termination of Pregnancy for surgical abortions up to 12 weeks 5 days. They also have a Foetal Medicine Unit for those with a diagnosis of Fatal Foetal Anomaly.
Reputable providers of Early Medical Abortion Pills
We know many people have no alternative but to seek Early Medical Abortion Pills online. While the World Health Organisation has said that Early Medical Abortion pills are safe, even when taken outside of clinical setting, there are risks associated with buying medication online and we do not advise anyone to take medication without qualified medical supervision if at all possible.
If you have no other option, in our experience both Women Help Women and Women on Web are reputable organisations who can provide Early Medical Abortion pills as well as advice and support. If you visit their websites you will find information about how these pills work, their safety and any side effects. Both organisations provide an online medical consultation. Both organisations ask for a donation for the pills. ASN does not provide funding for these pills and receives no payments or other benefits from anyone who uses these services. ASN does not accept any liability in respect of the actions of either organisation.
Providers outside of England
We are aware that some clients find it easier to fly to countries other than England. If this is the case for you, we have experience with funding clients at clinics in The Netherlands and Brussels. First trimester procedures in Brussels and second trimester procedures in Amsterdam will be less expensive in than in England even when you take flight and accommodation costs into account, although clients will need a passport or a European ID to travel and also an overnight stay. As with clinics in England, please contact us before you book flights, accommodation or anything else non refundable.
