The work of Informing Choices NI is based on a pro-choice ethos.
- Clients have the right to acknowledge all of their experiences of pregnancy and to have those experiences valued.
- Counselling and support should be non-directive and respect the client’s own value system.
- Individuals have the right to access accurate information about pregnancy and abortion.
- Women and pregnant people have the right to have an abortion.
- Abortion is a health care issue.
- Those who choose abortion have a right to acknowledge loss and grief.
