We need your help to fund Abortion Without Borders, a partnership providing information, advice and financial support to people in Poland who need abortions. The need in Poland has never been greater; as AWB enters its 5th year, we are being contacted by thousands of people who need help.
Abortion care in Poland is almost completely inaccessible. People who need abortions are forced to figure out how to get to clinics in other countries and come up with the funds – or find help to get the care they need. In cases of serious foetal indication, couples face the stress of travelling alongside the trauma of grieving a much-wanted but unviable pregnancy. Every day, four women leave Poland for an abortion overseas, and 90 access safe abortion with pills.
Abortion Without Borders works in partnership across Europe to connect Polish people with information and support to access abortions. A 7-day-a-week Polish helpline provides information, fielding 630 calls a month on average, and referring people to AWB partners outside of Poland if they need to travel for an abortion. We provide logistical support including arranging travel, accommodation and translation, and we cover the costs for people who need it.
