Abortion in Ireland and Northern Ireland

Abortion in Ireland and Northern Ireland is against the law, unless the pregnancy endangers the life of the woman.

It is however not against the law to travel outside Ireland or Northern Ireland to have an abortion. Every year, thousands of women who live in Ireland travel to the UK to have access to abortion services. NUPAS UK provides abortions for up to 17 weeks and 6 days of pregnancy in our UK clinics.

NUPAS are pleased to confirm that, following the landmark announcement that women from Northern Ireland will be able to access funded abortions, NUPAS will now provide abortions to women travelling from Northern Ireland at no charge.
