Frequently asked questions

MSI was founded in 1976 when Dr. Tim Black, Jean Black and Phil Harvey took over the Marie Stopes’ ‘Mothers Clinic’ in central London and decided to name their new women’s reproductive health organization Marie Stopes International in recognition of the historic building’s origins and after Marie Stopes herself.  

Marie Stopes was a pioneer of family planning; however, she expressed opinions which are in stark contrast to our organization’s core values and principles and we decided to change our name in 2020, We kept MSI in our name because those initials are recognized in the communities we serve as a safe, trusted resource for reproductive and sexual healthcare. Our new name, MSI Reproductive Choices, intentionally breaks our connection to Marie Stopes and puts choice front and center. 

MSI Reproductive Choices does not provide healthcare services in the United States. At MSI United States, we work to mobilize support for women and girls worldwide and inform Americans about global issues in sexual and reproductive health and rights.

Your donation becomes part of our Blue Door Fund, which was established to ensure that funding goes where it is most needed. Each country program applies internally to the fund, and these funds primarily support mobile outreach teams and efforts to strengthen the government provision of contraception, safe abortion and other reproductive health services in the countries where we work. This is important work that reaches millions of women that isn’t commercially self-sustaining. Donations to the Blue Door Fund help us respond to unexpected challenges and direct donor support to projects that will have the biggest impact.
