Great question. At Marie Stopes, you’re assured of receiving professional, confidential care provided by qualified doctors and nurses. Our centres are registered with the Health Professions Council of SA (HPCSA), which means we’re legally permitted to perform abortions.
Yes – abortions are legal in South Africa (up to 20 weeks into a pregnancy). But you still find plenty of illegal abortion providers offering their services on flyers and the internet. These individuals are not real doctors and have no formal training. Their methods are often extremely dangerous, and could leave you seriously injured or ill. In the worst cases, women have been known to die from illegal terminations, and this is still a very real and common occurrence in South Africa.
Bottom line: NEVER use an illegal abortion provider. Yes, they might be ‘cheap’ (and even if they tell you that they are ‘pain free’, it’s not true). But you could pay for it with your life.
