Stay Informed

From what bills are on Capitol Hill, to who your state reps are, and the basics about what language we use (and don’t use)... It’s crucial to be in the know – and it can be difficult and even overwhelming. Vet your sources, and moderate your consumption.

“Facts are very important, especially when discussing the health of women and the American public. The fact is, abortion is an essential component of women’s health care.” – ACOG: Facts are Important

Donate if you can

There are so many groups that need your support – and cash is the most effective way to literally contribute! Understanding that abortion networks and clinics are on the frontlines, this is where the need is most urgent. Here are a few to consider:

  • ARC Southeast
    We support southerners In AL, FL, GA, MS, SC, and TN. We provide funding and logistical support to ensure they receive safe and compassionate reproductive care including abortion services. 

  • National Network of Abortion Funds
    We build power with members to remove financial and logistical barriers to abortion access by centering people who have abortions and organizing at the intersections of racial, economic, and reproductive justice.

  • National Abortion Federation
    Mission: To unite, represent, serve, and support abortion providers in delivering patient-centered, evidence-based care.

  • Keep Our Clinics
    Provides funding to independent clinics nationwide to cover tangible expenses like increased security, building repairs, legal fees, and community education and advocacy. 

Consider sharing your story – Sharing our personal experiences helps to normalize abortion and break down stereotypes. Your story is yours to tell, and it’s also okay not to talk about it. Should you decide to, here are some safe platforms:

  • Shout Your Abortion – “SYA makes resources, campaigns, and media intended to arm existing activists, create new ones, and foster collective participation in abortion access all over the country.”

  • Abortion Out Loud – Fighting shame and stigma through storytelling, a project of Advocates for Youth.

  • We Testify – Shares the stories of those that have had abortions.

 

Talk with your religious community: There are organizations that support both clergy and congregation members of all faiths. Here are just a few –
