"What do you do if you need an abortion but you are too poor to afford one? For many women, the answer is: you turn to the only people who are willing and able to help—abortion funds." — Melissa Harris-Perry, 11/16/2013

In 2011 and 2012, states enacted record numbers of abortion restrictions, and abortion funds are now seeing the effect of these restrictions firsthand. Over the weekend, Melissa Harris-Perry spoke with Trina Stout of The CAIR Project, an all-volunteer abortion fund that helps women and girls in Washington, Idaho, Oregon and Alaska.
