Abortion is allowed only in special cases in the third trimester in some European countries.
The UK allows third trimester abortion in cases where the woman's life is at risk or the fetus is affected by an anomaly.
Such abortions will require specialist centres and tend to be very costly. If you think you qualify for a third trimester abortion, for example if you have been told your fetus has an anomaly or syndrome, please contact Abortion Support Network for more information on 27780991 or 20341685.
If you are not eligible for a third trimester abortion and you do not wish to raise a child, you may wish to consider other options such as adoption.
