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 make contact with a centre for unplanned pregnancy help.
