Abortion clinic in Soweto: Marie Stopes safe abortion clinics
Unplanned pregnancies don’t have to spell disaster, no matter your age, social status, family situation or finances. At the Marie Stopes centre in Soweto, you’re entitled to a safe and legal abortion regardless of your reasons for wanting to terminate. You don’t need anyone’s permission – if it’s your choice to terminate your pregnancy, we’ll be able to assist.

Is Marie Stopes one of the safe abortion clinics in Soweto? How can I be sure?
Yes, we are – and you can be sure because we’re registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA). This means that all our doctors and nurses are formally trained to carry out terminations, and legally permitted to do so.
This is not the case when you turn to an illegal abortion clinic in Soweto – the kind you see advertised on flyers or on the internet. Their procedures are carried out by unqualified, unskilled people, and often promise to be ‘cheap’ or ‘pain-free’. But here’s the catch: although they may not cost as much as a legal abortion, you could end up paying with your life.
These illegal providers may give you ‘abortion pills’ that are actually blood thinners or something else, which could make you seriously ill, or worse. Just read about Lebo’s terrifying experience.
NEVER choose an illegal provider – it’s not worth the risk. Rather turn to Marie Stopes, where you’re assured of proper care in a safe, comforting and sterile environment.
