The 1967 Abortion Act which gave women in England, Wales, and Scotland access to lawful abortion services was never extended to Northern Ireland. Women from Northern Ireland are forced to either travel to England for help when faced with an unwanted pregnancy, at a huge personal cost, or use abortion medication purchased online, illegally – and risk up to life imprisonment.
At BPAS, we want all women in Northern Ireland to have access to safe abortion care. And you can help us achieve this by supporting our work and getting involved in our campaigns.
A donation could support the subsidised services we provide for women who are struggling to raise the funds for abortion care in England and our free 24-hour helpline for women who have used online abortion pills and are desperately in need of medical advice.
It could help us further our campaigns to get abortion removed from the criminal law across the UK and improve women’s access to the care they need.
Any donation, big or small, will make a real difference. A regular monthly gift will also help support our work on an ongoing basis, until women in Northern Ireland can finally access care at home.
