Donations Welcome!

The last months of Abortion Network Amsterdam have been very busy. We are getting more and more requests for help from people all over the world. We are busy setting up appointments for abortion, finding a place to stay for the people coming, sometimes also arranging transportation and practical help. We also try to provide financial help which is proving to be challenging with our organization becoming more popular.

If you would like to help our cause, please consider making a donation to:

Abortion Network Amsterdam?

We are a group of volunteers who came together to create a network of support for women and pregnant people who don鈥檛 have access to safe abortion. This could be the case for a number of reasons:

    • They don鈥檛 have access to legal abortion in their country of origin (e.g. Poland, Malta, Northern Ireland).
    • The country they live in doesn鈥檛 provide second trimester abortions.
    • They don鈥檛 have access to legal abortion because of their status in the country they live in.

Compared to other European countries where abortion is also legal, the Netherlands is of specific interest because of the later term until which an abortion is allowed. Most countries only provide first trimester abortions, which is only until 12 weeks. There are numerous reasons why someone could need a second trimester abortion. Pregnancies are not always discovered within the first trimester, for instance. Because of this, there has been an increasing demand for support related to women and pregnant people having to come to The Netherlands for an abortion.

We work closely with other abortion support networks like Ciocia Basia in Berlin and Abortion Support Network in London. Our work mainly concerns Polish women who are in need of a second trimester abortion but we receive emails from people all over the world looking for help with an unintended pregnancy.

Practically our work involves helping to set up appointments, choosing the appropriate clinic in the Netherlands, making sure people have all the documents they need, helping with transportation, providing people traveling to The Netherlands with housing, translation aid and accompanying people to their appointment if requested.
