Senate Bill 8 (or S.B. 8) bans abortion in Texas after about six weeks, before most people even know they’re pregnant. Unlike other abortion bans, S.B. 8 is enforced by private individuals who are incentivized to sue providers and others who help someone an obtain an illegal abortion for up to $10,000 for each successful claim. We’re fighting back against this unconstitutional law, but we need your help.

Patients and all Texans deserve better, and our fight is far from over. We remain committed to protecting every person’s right to access the care they need, but we can’t do it without you. Your financial contributions at this time are critical.
Your support helps Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast ensure we can care for all patients who need us. Donations to PPGC will help us continue to provide abortion care within the confines of the law and maintain our infrastructure of trained patient navigators to help the patients we can no longer see access out-of-state care and resources, including direct financial assistance for transportation.
We hope you will continue to invest with courage and with confidence that we will never stop fighting for our shared vision of reproductive freedom. If you have questions about your donation, contact [email protected] or (713) 831-6505.
