Warning about The Haven in Cambridge: bogus medical advicePosted: 14 June 2012
“The Haven in Cambridge” recently set up shop at Citylife House, Sturton Street, Cambridge, CB1 2QF, offering “information about abortion, adoption and parenting and aim to equip you make an informed choice with regards to the future of your pregnancy” 
“The Haven in Cambridge” is one of many advice centres run by Care Confidential. Care Confidential is a Christian Evangelical organisation which opposes abortion under any circumstances. They are not in any way linked to the NHS, and they cannot refer you to an abortion provider. Nevertheless they have set up ‘Crisis Pregnancy Centres’ all over the UK. These centres are advertised in a way that implies that they can provide impartial counselling, accurate medical information, or a referral to an abortion provider, but they don’t provide any of these things. The people working at these centres often don’t have any medical qualifications, and they provide inaccurate and frightening medical information, with the goal of preventing abortion at all costs.
Feminist Action Cambridge believes that anyone considering an abortion should have access to accurate medical information and supportive, impartial counselling, should they need it.
If you need to get an abortion, or you are considering having an abortion and would like to talk to someone about it, you have a few options. You can go to your GP or to a family planning clinic and ask for a referral to an abortion provider. Or you can self-refer for an NHS-funded abortion by calling the British Pregnancy Advisory Service (BPAS) Actionline on 08457 30 40 30.
Abortions are free on the NHS.
