Description:
The function of the HSE Crisis Pregnancy Programme (formerly the Crisis Pregnancy Agency1) is to bring strategic focus to the issue of crisis pregnancy. A ‘crisis pregnancy’ is defined by the HSE Crisis Pregnancy Programme (HSE CPP) as “a pregnancy which is neither planned nor desired by the woman concerned and which represents a personal crisis for her”. The HSE CPP understands this definition to include the experiences of those women for whom a planned or desired pregnancy develops into a crisis over time due to a change in circumstances. The HSE CPP is tasked with developing and implementing a national strategy to address the issue of crisis pregnancy in Ireland. The Statutory Instrument (No. 466 of 2001), which established the former Crisis Pregnancy Agency, stated that one aim of setting up the Agency was: To reduce the number of women with crisis pregnancies who opt for abortion by offering supports and services which make other options more attractive.
