Introduction

The Abortion Rights Campaign (ARC) invite you to take part in an anonymous survey about your experience of getting - or trying to get - an abortion in Ireland since the introduction of legal abortion in January 2019. We are asking people to share their experiences to help us understand how Ireland’s abortion service is working. We will use the information gathered in this survey to campaign for any improvements that need to happen.


You can take this survey if: 

You have gotten an abortion in Ireland since 2nd January 2019. 
You have tried to get an abortion in Ireland since 2nd January 2019. 

About the survey: 

The survey will take around 30 minutes to complete. 
The survey is anonymous. The survey does not ask for your name or any other information that could identify who you are and your IP address cannot be tracked.
Your participation is completely voluntary and you do not need to answer all the questions if you don’t want to. 
We may use quotes from the survey in advocacy and information materials if you agree; these quotes will always be anonymous. 
You will be asked again at the end of the survey if you are happy for your anonymised responses to be quoted. You can complete the survey and tick ‘no’ to this question and your quotes will not be used. 
You can leave the survey at any time before clicking ‘submit’ and your data will not be saved.  

All data collected from the survey will be stored securely by the Abortion Rights Campaign. At the end of the project, your responses will be archived at the Digital Repository of Ireland if you agree. The data will be made available to other researchers worldwide for research and to improve healthcare. Because the survey is anonymous, there is no way that you can be identified.


After the survey: 

At the end of the survey, you will have the option of clicking a link where you can sign up for ARC’s newsletter to receive updates about this study. This link will take you to a new web page. None of the information you provide on the new page can be linked with the responses you give to the survey.
