Pregnancy crisis services are usually run by anti-abortion groups with the aim of stopping women from having abortion, and there have been reports of women being intimidated in Malta after contacting such services to stop them from having an abortion. Such pregnancy crisis services cannot be relied upon to give factual information on abortion, and they will not refer you to abortion providers. They might even report you to the police. It is ultimately your decision whether you wish to make use of such services, but we do not recommend it.
Pregnancy crisis services run by anti-abortion groups include Life Line Malta which is administered by Life Network Foundation.
If you would like someone to discuss your pregnancy options with, we recommend contacting a pro-choice service like the Family Planning Advisory Service (FPAS).
