Women Have Options is Ohio’s only independent abortion fund. Founded in 1992, they are an all-volunteer organization dedicated to helping women afford their reproductive choices. They are a founding member of the National Network of Abortion Funds, which includes more than 100 abortion funds around the United States.
Simply, they provide financial assistance to help women afford contraception, emergency contraception, and abortion services. While they receive grants from national foundations, most of their resources come from individual donors. They distribute funds to clinics throughout Ohio. These clinics, in turn, use the funds to provide financial assistance to women in need. Since 1992, Women Have Options has helped thousands of women pay for their reproductive choices.
Some of the women the Fund serves are single parents struggling to support their children, many are students determined to complete their education, while others are facing debilitating conditions such as domestic violence, illness, substance abuse, rape, or incest. All deserve to make their own reproductive choices, without jeopardizing their health or future.
The cost of a first trimester abortion can be more than a poverty level family lives on in a month. Women forgo food, risk eviction, and pawn their possessions as they attempt to raise money for an abortion. Some are forced to continue the pregnancy, abandon their education, and stay trapped in poverty. For many women, what may seem like a small amount—often less than $100—can make all the difference, allowing them to afford the reproductive health care they desperately need.
