Marie Stopes Johannesburg: safe, legal abortion services
Never choose an illegal abortion provider. Unqualified abortion providers, like those who advertise on street corners or lamp posts, often use dangerous methods and operate in unsanitary environments. An illegal abortion can leave you seriously ill or infertile, and it could even kill you. It’s not worth the risk.
A safe, legal abortion is your RIGHT!
Whatever your circumstances, it’s your right to terminate up to 20 weeks into the pregnancy. It’s entirely your decision, and if it’s something you want to do, rest assured that’s it’s legal in South Africa to have an abortion
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.
We’re here to support you, whatever choice you make about your pregnancy, so you never have to feel alone. Read more about our abortion services.
