TEA recognizes that abortion is essential health care and their donation page can be found here.
by your side
Missouri is One of the first states to ban abortion in the days to come Dobbs v. Jackson Ruling unless there is a medical emergency. There are no exceptions for rape or incest in Missouri, where the law does not clearly define a “medical emergency,” according to doctors in the state.
The advocacy group Right by You is described on its website as a “youth-focused line of text that connects Missourians to abortion care, fertility care, adoption and parenting support, birth control, and information about their rights.” They don’t directly Provides funding to those seeking abortion; instead, their services are informational and designed to educate young people about the full range of reproductive health options—including abortion care. They are actively seeking funding and volunteers to help ensure Missourians access to reproductive health services. Those who want their donations to specifically help women who cannot afford abortions should consider donating to the Missouri Abortion Fund.
Indian Abortion Fund
While abortion is still technically legal in Indiana, lawmakers in the state are working to reverse the process. The Hoosier Abortion Fund provides abortion assistance (and other pregnancy options) to women in need, including adoption services, pregnancy support, diaper programs, and parenting advice outside of abortion support services. Those in financial need simply speak up when calling their All-Options Talkline.
women have choices
Ohio bans abortion after six weeks — again, before most women even know or show signs of pregnancy — and in cases of rape or incest. According to abortionfunds.org, a national network of abortion funds run by individual members and supported by donations, Women Have Options (WHO) is an Ohio-based service that works with most clinics in the state. While they do not provide assistance directly to individuals, they provide grants to clinics that provide assistance to patients in need of financial assistance.
Like most other reproductive rights funds, WHO relies on grants from organizations and individuals to stay afloat and provide the best possible care to women in need (and the pregnant women we see in Ohio).
Kansas Abortion Fund
Because every abortion fund is different, it’s worth investigating how your donation will be used. Some funds directly help women pay for abortions, while others provide logistical and practical support for related costs.in an interview kansas city star, Sandy Brown, president of the Kansas Abortion Foundation, explained how her organization supports women: “A lot of the funds have practical support, including transportation, gas, child care, lodging,” she said. “We work with clinics to provide abortion funding to people who don’t have the funds to pay for abortion care.”
The Kansas Abortion Fund could also use your help in a state where anti-choice activists are working to change the state constitution by removing the right to abortion care.
On the one hand, the desperate need for these organizations is a maddening reminder that no matter where you live, the mistresses we represent will always have access to safe abortions. But in the face of those bent on social decline, it often takes grassroots efforts to bring about change. When it all gets a little overwhelming, these organizations are also a reminder that there are countless people working for the humanity of women. We can do our part to help them during the donation process.
