It is important that you make a decision that is safe and right for you. If you are choosing abortion you do this through your GP, or through a sexual health clinic. This is important as they can do a medical assessment and make sure that the procedure is safe for you. If you need help in accessing any service please call the national helpline 0300 4000 999, or log onto a confidential online counselling service for unplanned pregnancy support.
