If you are a resident of Washington DC, Maryland, or Virginia and you are at least 9 weeks pregnant, you may get help from the DC Abortion Fund. They may also be able to help you if you are traveling to the DC area for your abortion.
Call the DC Abortion Fund and leave a message slowly stating your name, your full phone number including area code, and the number of weeks you are pregnant. Someone from the Fund will call you back within 48 hours. They will use a blocked number, so make sure that your phone will accept blocked and unknown numbers.
The DC Abortion Fund started in 1995 when a social worker began raising money for a rape survivor to get an abortion. After she raised the money she needed, she had some money left over—so she saved it for the next time a woman would need help.
This Fund has stayed true to its roots—it is led and staffed entirely by volunteers, and continues to make grants and no-interest loans to DC regional women who cannot afford the full cost of an abortion.
Last year, the DC Abortion Fund helped over 500 women who otherwise could not have paid for their abortions. The hotline provides a safe and confidential connection to healthcare services often restricted by today’s political climate around abortion, and their case managers offer financial and pregnancy options counseling to clients, working with area health clinics that also supply birth control and other reproductive health information and services.
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.
