The moment we’ve all feared is here: The Supreme Court took away our constitutional right to abortion, allowing states to ban abortion and strip millions of people of their access to this essential health care.
We no longer have the right to control our bodies and futures or make our own personal health care decisions. This will fuel the efforts of lawmakers to ban abortion across the country. Like you, we’re outraged and devastated — but we’re not backing down, and we know you’re not either. Generations before us fought tirelessly to gain and protect our rights, and we will continue that fight. Here’s how you can help:
Abortion funds help patients pay for their care if they have to travel to other states to get an abortion and may provide other resources, like transportation, lodging, and child care. They’re an essential resource for people who would not otherwise be able to afford or access an abortion.
Your gift will help affiliate health centers continue to provide care, no matter what.
Independent abortion clinics need your support now more than ever.
Share resources for people who may need an abortion
Abortion is still legal in many states. Abortionfinder.org can help people find the closest provider to them. And the National Network of Abortion Funds has more information about local resources that can help with travel and other logistics.
Even though nearly 1 in 4 women in the U.S. will have an abortion by the time they’re 45 years old, many people don’t talk about it. But silence and stigma are weapons that lawmakers use to take away our rights. So we need to tell our own stories about why abortion access is important. You have the power to help change hearts and minds, reduce stigma, and give others the courage to join the fight. Use the hashtag #WhateverTheReason on social media or share your story here.
