Marie Stopes Durban: safe abortion services
The Marie Stopes centres in Durban and other parts of South Africa are a safe haven for women, offering legal abortions up to 20 weeks into a pregnancy. All our services are provided in total privacy and without judgement or criticism.
If you’re considering having an abortion, you can turn to Marie Stopes for personalised, caring advice and the highest level of treatment.
How do your abortion services differ from those I’ve seen advertised in my neighbourhood?
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.
