The Marie Stopes International abortion business, an international conglomerate that runs abortion centers in the UK, Australia and around the world, is shutting down four of its abortion centers in Australia. The move will save countless babies from abortion in locations where there are not other abortion centers ending their lives and injuring women.
As the Guardian reports, the abortion centers are “no longer financially viable” and will close next month. it will close abortion businesses in Rockhampton and Townsville as well as centers on the Gold Coast and in Newcastle, New South Wales.
Jamal Hakim, the managing director of Marie Stopes Australia, said costs had gone up because few people wanted to work at abortion centers and no doctors locally would agree to kill babies in abortions, so the company had to pay to fly in abortion practitioners from other parts of Australia.
“That’s not sustainable, obviously,” Hakim said.
Earlier this month, MSI closed its main abortion business in the UK, which had killed thousands of babies a year in abortions. The Marie Stopes House clinic, located on Whitfield Street in Bloomsbury, was Britain’s first family planning clinic. It moved from its initial location in Holloway, North London in 1925.

It was only in November 2020 that Marie Stopes International was renamed “MSI Reproductive Choices” due to Stopes’ well-documented views on eugenics, despite the company claiming that “The name of the organisation has been a topic of discussion for many years”.
In the wake of this change, the organisation was ridiculed due to its new name’s resemblance to the Movimento Sociale Italiano (MSI), the Italian Social Movement. The party was formed in 1946 by supporters of the former Italian dictator, Benito Mussolini. MSI is regarded as a successor of Mussolini’s Republican Fascist Party (PFR).
Marie Stopes publicly advocated for the involuntary sterilisation of several groups she deemed unfit for parenthood, including people with disabilities, addicts, ‘subversives’, criminals, and those of mixed ethnic origin. Stopes even wrote her own son out of her will because he married a woman who had bad eyesight.
In her writings, Stopes called for laws that allowed the forced sterilisation of what she described as the “hopelessly rotten and racially diseased” and wrote fiercely against interracial marriage. She also corresponded with Adolf Hitler, and in August 1939 enclosed a book of her love poems to him.
Profits prioritised over patients
In 2017, a damning report from the UK’s Care Quality Commission (CQC) accused Marie Stopes International (now MSI Reproductive Choices) of paying staff bonuses for persuading women to have abortions.
At all 70 Marie Stopes clinics, inspectors from the Care Quality Commission found evidence of a policy that saw staff utilise a high-pressure sales tactic, calling women who had decided against having an abortion to offer them another appointment.
Another report in 2017 showed that nearly 400 botched abortions were carried out in two months at Marie Stopes clinics. The report also outlined that in another three-month period, 11 women needed emergency transfers to hospital after difficulties at facilities run by the abortion provider.
In 2016, Marie Stopes International was forced to suspend abortion services for a month after an unannounced inspection by the CQC found 2,600 safety flaws at Marie Stopes International abortion clinics in the UK including doctors going home and leaving women under sedation to be supervised by nurses and healthcare assistants, fetuses being put in waste bins rather than cremated and staff trying to give a vulnerable, visibly distressed woman an abortion without her consent.
The inspectors also found that almost half of nurses working at the clinics had not been trained to do resuscitation, safety incidents including medical blunders and equipment failures had increased by a third in a year and doctors were signing off up to 60 consent forms at a time when they were meant to be making a thorough assessment. One doctor filled in up to 26 consent forms in two minutes.
