The British Pregnancy Advisory Service (BPAS) has been providing abortion care to women from Ireland since 1968.
There is little difference between the reasons women from Ireland present and the reasons women from the UK present; they are diverse and multifaceted.
They may involve financial hardship, knowing one’s family is complete, inadequate partner or family support, domestic violence or simply a woman feeling she is not in a position to care for a baby at that point in her life.
