Why Your Donation is Important
If Whole Woman’s Health has helped you or someone you know, and if you believe that abortions are essential, there are two ways that you can help us continue to provide compassionate care, shift the stigma around abortion, and advocate for your rights. Here’s how.
Ways to Donate
FIGHT BACK AGAINST ANTI-ABORTION LAWS:
Attacks against abortion rights are at an all-time high, and we are doing everything in our power to ensure safe, legal abortion is there for anyone who needs it. We regularly take on purposeful litigation in the states where we operate and raise our voice in local, state, and national media outlets to normalize and destigmatize abortion care. No attack has been more brazen than Texas’ Senate Bill 8, a harmful and extreme anti-abortion ban set to take effect September 1, 2021. We’ve beaten back these attacks before and we can and will do it again. Donate to join the fight for abortion rights.
WHOLE WOMAN’S HEALTH ALLIANCE:
Whole Woman’s Health Alliance (WWHA) is a 501(c)(3) organization that intentionally seeks to open clinics in areas of the country which are most impacted by anti-abortion legislation. WWHA has an ambitious mission to improve access to quality abortion care through direct service provision, purposeful litigation, advocacy, and strategic communications.
Independent abortion providers like Whole Woman’s Health Alliance provide over 60% of abortions in the United States, particularly in areas where we are needed most. We do this because we believe safe, affordable, quality abortion care should be accessible to all, regardless of their zip code.
Donating to WWHA allows us to direct funds to the areas of greatest need. Anti-abortion legislation results in a great deal of clinic disruption, and your donation will help us support WWH and WWHA clinics that are facing hardship and overall legal efforts to combat harmful legislation.
STIGMA RELIEF FUND:
The Stigma Relief Fund (SRF) is an abortion fund serving people who seek abortion care at any Whole Woman’s Health clinic. The SRF was created in 2004 as a 501(c)3 nonprofit and is a member of the National Network of Abortion Funds (NNAF). The fund provides financial support for those who cannot afford to pay the entire cost of an abortion. In addition to funding the cost of the abortion procedure, the SRF can be used for practical support such as travel, lodging, food, and other costs associated with abortion care.
The SRF is an internal abortion fund that primarily serves as gap funding for people, who after pursuing other funding options, are still unable to cover the logistical and procedural costs of care. There are no income eligibility requirements for the SRF and assessing the need for funding is based on each patient’s self-report.
