dc.description.abstract Legalising abortion in many countries has given women the choice or right to decide to terminate a pregnancy. In South Africa the Choice on Termination of Pregnancy (CTOP) Act, 92 of 1996, was promulgated in 1997. This legislation promotes reproductive rights including the choice to have an unwanted pregnancy terminated timeously, safely and legally. This exploratory, descriptive and contextual qualitative (phenomenological) study was designed to gain insight into the experiences of registered nurses providing TOP services and to provide relevant recommendations. Participants comprised registered nurses providing TOP services at one community health centre near Pretoria. Registered nurses have the right to refuse to participate in TOPs; those who do provide services could experience psychological trauma. en
