Abortion

IPPF works to ensure that every woman and girl has the human right to choose to be pregnant or not and we will continue to supply and support safe and legal abortion services and care. We are committed to reducing the number of deaths of women and girls who are forced to turn to unsafe abortion methods. Make Abortion Safe. Make Abortion Legal. For all Women and Girls. Everywhere.

A recent troubling ruling in Poland has imposed a near ban on abortion. The result will be agonizing for women and their families, forcing some to continue through pregnancies against their will, while others will have no choice but to travel abroad to seek care, or to seek underground abortions.
The vote has repercussions outside of Ireland, bringing into even sharper focus Europe’s outliers – those remaining countries that still refuse to end forced pregnancy.
