April says "This year, I'm hoisting my toddler on my back, putting on funny shoes and hurling a hilariously small ball at some pins because I believe that everyone should have access to the abortions they need, regardless of how much money they have. I'm bowling for everyone who's had to decide between paying rent and having their abortion. I'm bowling for the client who endured a two hour bus ride after hir appointment because the clinic was so far from home. I'm bowling for my daughter." She's only $158 away from her $1000 goal.

NNAF Staff Phone Bank for Earned Sick Time

This past Tuesday, staff members of the National Network of Abortion Funds were proud to phone bank for earned sick time in Massachusetts as part of the Yes On 4 campaign, in partnership with the Jewish Alliance for Law and Social Action (JALSA), a member of Raise Up Massachusetts.

 As abortion fund activists, we know that earned sick time is a crucial part of economic justice and therefore reproductive justice. A woman should be able to take time off work to take care of herself and her family without fear of losing her job. This helps enable her to access reproductive health care, including abortion care, and also to care for the children she already has.
