Education For Choice

Education For Choice (EFC) was a Brook project dedicated to enabling young people to make informed choices about pregnancy and abortion.

During the project we called, and still do, for all young people to get accurate information about abortion, and impartial support with pregnancy decision-making. EFC's work was focused on choice. Whilst we concentrate on the issue of abortion, as it is the issue that receives least attention, we believe that work with young people should value all pregnancy options equally.

When young people have opportunities to explore the decisions that can lead to and result from pregnancy they are better able to:

  • Protect themselves from sexually transmitted infections and unintended pregnancy
  • Make informed choices
  • Access appropriate services to support their choices

Our ethos was, and still is, that the best outcomes of unintended pregnancy occur when the pregnant person has been able to make their own informed choice.
