Why should I go to Marie Stopes when I’ve found “cheap”, “pain-free” and “same-day pill” abortions advertised online?
The so-called ‘cheap’ and/or ‘pain-free’ abortions you read about online are most likely a scam, advertised by illegal abortion providers whose methods are dodgy and dangerous. Some promise to send you pills, others assure you of a pain-free, fast or secret procedure. But the truth is that often these methods don’t work. Worse, they may actually cause you harm – sometimes permanently – and could even kill you.
Many women live in fear of rejection by their communities if they have an abortion. Illegal providers lure in desperate and unsuspecting women by offering anonymity and a quick, ‘painless’ solution. What they don’t tell you is that their methods frequently fail and are often downright dangerous. An illegal abortion can leave you sterile (unable to have children), ill or damaged for life. Worse still, it can kill you.
We know that even though abortion is legal in South Africa and has been for decades, there’s still a stigma surrounding it. We understand that you may be afraid of the procedure, and afraid of your community finding out. At Marie Stopes, you’re assured of confidential treatment carried out by qualified doctors and nurses, in a safe and sterile environment. Never trust an illegal abortion provider.
