Abortion without Borders
We provide information, support and funding to people in Poland who need abortions, in Poland with abortion pills or abroad.
Abortion Without Borders is an initiative of nine organisations in multiple countries working together to help people access abortions at home with pills or abroad in clinics. When you contact us you will speak to a helpline staffed by Kobiety W Sieci, who have been providing pregnancy options counselling and information about abortion since 2006. Your first call or email will be to Kobiety W Sieci, who will then put you in touch with Abortion Dream Team, Women Help Women, Ciocia Basia, Ciocia Czesia, Ciocia Wienia, Abortion Network Amsterdam or Abortion Support Network for further help.
Abortion Without Borders launched on 11 December 2019. In our second year of work, we received calls from 31,790 people from Poland (compared to 5,237 in our first year). We spent €248,440 on safe abortion pills, procedures in abortion clinics, travel, accommodation, and Covid testing (€78,453 in year one), and we helped 1,186 people travel to another country for an abortion in a clinic or hospital (262 in year one).
To financially support the work of Abortion Without Borders, you can make a donation in any amount or currency.
If you are in Poland and need an abortion, contact Abortion Without Borders organisation Kobiety W Sieci.
Abortion Without Borders is working to provide support to displaced people from Ukraine. We will help people access safe abortion with pills and, for those who are able to travel, abroad. If you need an abortion, please get in touch and we will help you as much as we can. Information in Russian and Ukrainian is available from Abortion Dream Team.
We help people access abortions. We reduce stigma around abortion, whether with pills at home or at a clinic abroad.
We never ask clients how they got pregnant or why they want abortions, but trust and respect the autonomy of pregnant people. Our only criteria for funding is financial need.
We believe the only person with the right to decide to continue or end a pregnancy is the person who is pregnant.
We ensure that “I can’t afford an abortion” is never the only reason someone has a baby, or another baby.
We are openly pro-abortion.
