Bowl-a-Thon page of the week: Tana, with the Richmond Reproductive Freedom Project!

Congratulations to Abortion Access Bowl-a-Thon Page of the Week WINNER Tana, bowling next week with the Richmond Reproductive Freedom Project!

Tana's story is incredibly powerful and moving.

She starts by saying, "I'm bowling for abortion access because abortion funds helped me when I needed an abortion, and I want to make sure that everyone has access to the same options I did."

And from there, the details are wrenching.

Abortion fund volunteers know her dilemma well: because of her high-risk pregnancy and condition, Tana's doctor strongly advised her to seek an abortion. But because her pregnancy had progressed past 12 weeks, her insurance would not cover an abortion unless she was hemorrhaging heavily.

A mother of three, Tana could not believe what she was hearing:

"In other words, they could not help unless I was literally dying right there and then."
