To encourage and facilitate conversations about abortion with individuals and communities in order to end abortion stigma.
We currently do this by operating a talkline, delivering workshops to abortion providers and facilitators and working with stakeholder organisations to raise awareness of abortion stigma and the value of talking about abortion.
Our trained volunteers provide callers with one-to-one support and space to talk through their experience of abortion.
Facilitated by Abortion Talk staff for health care professionals to talk about the rewards, challenges and emotional aspects of providing abortion-related care.
It takes a community effort to open up discussions about abortion and create a world free from abortion stigma. Can you support us on our mission?
Your donation helps up to keep the conversations going.
We are health professionals, academics, and activists working in abortion provision, education, research and advocacy
Who we are
We believe there is no right or wrong way to feel about your own abortion.
Abortion isn’t straightforward for everyone. We recognise and respect that.
We are pro-choice. Everybody should have the right to choose whether to continue or end a pregnancy. Abortion should be safe, legal, free and accessible at home or close to home for everyone, regardless of age, race, gender, sexuality, religion, disability or socio-economic background.
We support reproductive justice. We recognise the economic, social, cultural, and political constraints within which people make choices about pregnancy. We support initiatives that highlight and tackle the impact of poverty, racism, and other forms of discrimination on people’s ability to make pregnancy choices and access appropriate care.
We are pro-voice. We believe that harmful stigma around abortion is reinforced when people are unable to talk about it. We recognise the benefit of enabling those who have had, or provided, abortions to discuss their experiences.
