To coincide with the International Action Day for Decriminalisation of Abortion, a new service for women seeking medical abortions living in countries where abortion access is severely limited or illegal has launched. Women Help Women ( is the second website to offer medical abortions to women living in Northern Ireland who are up to 9 weeks pregnant.

Women On Web ( was the first website to provide options to women in various languages, following an online GP consultation and a donation of €90. However, Women Help Women suggest a donation of €75 for a medical abortion and also offers contraception (€40-55), emergency contraception (€32), condoms and resources for activists. They claim to ‘increase the availability of reproductive health choices needed to control our reproductive lives’ and delivery should be expected within 10-14 days.
