The staff of Whole Woman's Heath, headquartered in Austin, Texas, created the Bush Relief Fund in December 2003 in response to their frustration with then-President George W. Bush's restrictions on abortion access. The goal of the non-profit Bush Relief Fund is to financially support women seeking the health care they need and to protect women's access to reproductive health services, including abortion. With the election of President Barack Obama in 2008, Whole Woman’s Health voted to change the fund’s name to the Stigma Relief Fund in order reflect their dedication to eliminating stigma surrounding abortion.
Since its founding in 2003, Whole Woman’s Health has opened six feminist health centers—five in Texas, and one in Baltimore—and sees more than 10,000 women a year for reproductive healthcare. They are also active in politics and education in the communities they serve.
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.
