South Africa: Organizations and Clinics

Abortion is legal.
Mifepristone is available as Mifegyne and Misoprostol are available. Abortions are provided in most public hospitals for free. There are also private clinics like Maries Stopes where women have to pay.

Marie Stopes provides abortion at home services, involving a phone call and medicines delivered to homes across the country. This may be a quicker and more affordable service for you. You can read more about this service here or call their free advice line 0800 1177 85.

According the law one should be able to get treatment for free in most state hospitals when the pregnancy is less than 12 weeks. Between 13 and 20 weeks abortion is available for socioeconomic reasons but it might be difficult to find a clinic who can help you.
