Created by a community of abortion activists and professionals, Abortion Talk is on a mission to create a world free from abortion stigma.

We are pro-choice and believe in safe, inclusive and accessible abortions for all, regardless of age, race, gender, sexuality, disability, religion, socio-economic background, geographical location or legal jurisdiction.

We align our work to the Reproductive Justice principles which Sister Song have defined as ‘the human right to maintain personal bodily autonomy, have children, not have children, and parent the children we have in safe and sustainable communities.’

We challenge the silence and shame that fuels abortion stigma and through our pro-voice approach, commit to addressing the health disparities, racialised systems and misogynistic hierarchies that perpetuate poor or non-existent abortion support.

We hold space for providers to explore their emotional relationship to their work and address the impact of stigma on them and the people they provide care for.

We believe that there is no hierarchy to abortions or to the support we provide for those providing and seeking care. Women have abortions for many different reasons and many people provide the essential care they need; we commit to supporting everyone, whatever their experience, with the same level of care and attention.

All of our work is guided by the expressed needs of the communities, groups and individuals we support and we work to identify the gaps in our service provision as well as the wider abortion care systems through research and collaborations with abortion providers, those seeking care and other abortion allies and advocates.

About
Abortion Talk is a new charity breaking the silence around abortion by creating spaces for anyone affected by their experience to talk and receive the support they may want and need.
