Marie Stopes Cape Town: safe and legal abortions
Marie Stopes offers three conveniently located centres in Cape Town for women who are considering terminating their pregnancies. In South Africa, you have the right to a legal abortion up to 20 weeks into a pregnancy.
The Marie Stopes centres in Cape Town are staffed by compassionate and highly trained medical professionals, which means you get the same level of care as you would at a private doctor or hospital. We don’t question your choices or try to change your mind; we’re simply here to provide safe, dependable care without passing criticism or judgement. That’s why so many women turn to us during this challenging time.
Never choose an illegal abortion provider
Usually, abortion services that you see advertised on flyers around your neighbourhood are illegal services. They’re provided by people who are not qualified doctors, and/or aren’t legally authorised to provide terminations. Using their services could result in serious illness, permanent damage to your reproductive system or, in extreme cases, even death.
Remember: abortion is legal in South Africa, so there is no reason to ever visit an illegal service provider. If you have passed the 20-week mark, there are other options available to you, which we’ll talk you through and help you to understand.
