Welcome to Abortion Talk

We’re a UK charity committed to fighting abortion stigma. Whether you’ve accessed abortion services, are thinking about it, or work in abortion care, we’re here to support you. We make space for the conversations that make people feel heard, valued, and help them find the support they want and need.

 

What is abortion stigma?

Abortion stigma comes from many places. From the media, from anti-choice groups and individuals, from medically unnecessary abortion laws, from myths about abortion, from societies' gendered expectations of parenting. Fear of being stigmatised for mentioning abortions can make us feel unable to talk about our experiences when we want to.

 

Abortion Talk runs the UK’s first and only free, confidential Talkine for anyone who needs a safe space to talk about their abortion experience. We also run workshops for abortion providers, community groups, and advocacy professionals, giving them time to explore the rewards of their work and the challenges of abortion-related stigma.

Workshops

Abortion Talk workshops bring abortion conversations to community and professional settings. Our workshops support and train healthcare professionals, students, abortion advocates, and community groups.

 

These workshops can transform how people listen, understand, respond, and connect to abortion conversations in their work or day-to-day life, and improve healthcare providers confidence and skills. We also offer bespoke modules to meet your needs.

Our Projects

My Body My Life is a public engagement project that seeks to address abortion stigma by bringing real stories of abortion into the open. These stories show how an unintended pregnancy is a part of so many people’s lives, how different people have made their abortion decisions, and what the process was like for them. Our hope is that by creating a space for people to share their stories, the project will open up conversations about real experiences – positive and negative – to help us all to speak, to listen, and to understand without judgement.

“I recently attended one of your Talkline and I just wanted to thank you. I got a medical abortion done, I’m only 19. I was so desperate and didn’t know what to do. I had no one on my side and even my ex-boyfriend was shaming on me. I felt so lonely, so misunderstood and left behind. But finding out that many other women are going through what I’m going through was encouraging and comforting…thank you very much, your campaign saved me.”
