The site of the first Planned Parenthood, Planned Parenthood of New York City created this fund to help ease the burden of medical costs and ensure that women and girls can get the health care they need.
Last year the Abortion Fund helped over 100 women and girls who otherwise would not have been able to afford an abortion.
In addition, Planned Parenthood offers a wide range of health and education services, including sliding-scale fees for low-income patients. They also maintain a dynamic blog, Unrated and Unfiltered, as a forum for their staff and activists to keep up with the latest local reproductive health news.
For abortion funds, raising money is half the battle, because they can’t help women unless they have something to give. Donating to your local abortion fund means giving a woman the resources she needs to make the choice that is right for her.
