Update: Last night's telethon raised over $54,000 for Texas abortion funds! Thank you to the New York Abortion Access Fund and Lizz Winstead for all their work organizing this event and for standing in solidarity with Texas!

In the two weeks since a surprise court ruling forced nearly a third of Texas' abortion clinics to close, the state's abortion fund hotlines haven't stopped ringing — and abortion fund activists haven't stopped answering.

Abortion fund supporters have come forward like never before as well: from coast to coast, the response has been tremendous. And tonight, we hope you will join us and tune in to an exciting, star-studded online telethon to help Texas abortion funds meet the urgent needs of the women who are now turning to them.
