Ciocia Basia

Ciocia Basia is an activist group created to support people from countries where abortion is illegal who want to come to Berlin to have an abortion. We facilitate contact and appointments with confidential, non-judgemental counselors and medical professionals who offer medical and surgical abortion.
We can also help with the translation and provide free accommodation in volunteer homes in Berlin if needed. We do not profit financially from our activism!

Kumpela:

We are a group of people that aims to ensure access to safe and legal abortion for people from Poland. If you want to come to Leipzig to get your abortion here, we will help you with all the necessary matters.
We can connect you with doctors that will advise you and determine the next steps. If you would like to, we can also accompany you to the appointments and interpret for you.
There are two methods of termination of pregnancy – medical and surgical abortion. Depending on the method, the cost can vary between 300 and 600 euro. If you can’t afford the treatment, please contact us anyways. Together, we will try to find a solution!
We try to keep your stay in Leipzig as short as possible, but you have to reckon with at least 9 days. If need be, we offer help with planning your arrival and return home. Thanks to our supporters, we are also able to arrange free accommodation for you.
We support every person that seeks access to safe and legal abortion.
We also want to support people who are financially unable to afford an abortion. Therefore, we are dependent on donations from like-minded people. Our work is yet voluntary and we do not derive any financial benefit from it.

Ireland and Northern Ireland

Abortion Support Network: provides financial assistance and accommodation to those traveling from the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland  to England to access a safe and legal abortion.

Abortion Rights Campaign

 

The Netherlands

ANA - ABORTION NETWORK AMSTERDAM

We are a group of volunteers who came together to create a network of support for women and pregnant people who don’t have access to safe abortion. This could be the case for a number of reasons:

-They don’t have access to legal abortion in their country of origin (e.g. Poland, Malta, Northern Ireland).
-The country they live in doesn’t provide second trimester abortions.
-They don’t have access to legal abortion because of their status in the country they live in.

Compared to other European countries where abortion is also legal, the Netherlands is of specific interest because of the later term until which an abortion is allowed. Most countries only provide abortions during the first trimester, which is until 12 weeks.

There are numerous reasons why someone could need a second trimester abortion. Pregnancies are not always discovered within the first trimester, for instance. In many countries first trimester abortions are only legal on paper, in practice they are not always accessible to everyone. With the changing political climate there has been an increasing demand for support related to women and pregnant people having to come to The Netherlands for an abortion.

We work closely with other abortion support networks like Abortion Dream Team in Poland, Ciocia Basia in Berlin and Abortion Support Network in London. Our work mainly concerns Polish women who are in need of a second trimester abortion but we receive emails from people all over the world looking for help with an unintended pregnancy.

Practically our work involves helping to set up appointments, choosing the appropriate clinic in the Netherlands, making sure people have all the documents they need, helping with transportation, providing people travelling to The Netherlands with housing, translation aid and accompanying people to their appointment if requested.
