Every year we see women who face unplanned pregnancies. We understand that this may be a very difficult time for you. We are here to support you with whatever decision you make.

Abortion and the Law in Ireland

If you are not sure where to turn for abortion advice, knowing which organisations will give you genuine, confidential information can be confusing.

In Ireland abortion is available under very restrictive criteria and asking for advice and information about abortion is perfectly legal.

Women should be aware that some organisations in Ireland offering unplanned pregnancy counselling may not be impartial or may not be pro-choice.

Reproductive Choice are able to provide you with information and advice in relation to your pregnancy options. It is legal to access abortion services in other countries. Alternatively, you could also look into fostering or adoption.

Reproductive Choices will always give you confidential, non-judgemental and professional advice.
