Marie Stopes UK

Charity description

Marie Stopes UK logo
Providing the UK with support around pregnancy options & abortion care treatment. We believe everyone deserves a non-judgmental, supportive network of abortion care services available to them in local settings with ease of access.

Here in the UK we're proud to say that we help women exercise reproductive choices in the way they feel is right for them. Last year Marie Stopes was able to help almost 70,000 women. It is very important to us to offer as much choice as we can, through clinic locations and types of treatment.

So, if you believe women have the right to choose when & if to have children, you’ve come to the right page!

It’s 2017, & still some countries make access to abortion care almost impossible & criminalise women who try to take matters into their own hands at home.

Did you know that abortion law is different in Ireland & Northern Ireland from the law in England? Very few Irish women meet the strict criteria for access to local & legal abortion services.

In 2015 over 4,000 Irish women had to save up to pay privately
for their abortion, but also had to travel hundreds of miles to England for the appointment. Often alone.

It’s a race against time for women to raise the money quickly to make it over to England before they’re too far along with the pregnancy.

Many more women in Ireland are unable to travel - it’s simply too expensive.

For these women choice is limited to: continue the pregnancy, or risk their health trying to end the pregnancy themselves. They often risk their freedom by ordering illegal abortion pills online.

Imagine the desperation you must feel to risk everything for a medical service, what lengths would you be prepared to go to? We want to avoid women having to ask themselves that question.

Your donation today will help someone being denied local access to legal abortion care.

The Open Door Fund offers financial assistance to those traveling across the Irish Sea for an appointment when they can’t afford it.

No one deserves to have choice taken from them
