The work to secure access to abortion services is never-ending and happening in multiple capacities across the reproductive rights and justice movement. And while there are several key leaders throughout the movement, a champion on the frontlines of these organizing efforts are the abortion funds assisting pregnant people in accessing the care and support that they need.
As the defenders of bodily autonomy fight to provide abortion access across the nation, the work of abortion funds in supporting both services and organizing comes into greater focus. Regardless of the final fate of Roe. v. Wade, it's abundantly clear that philanthropy must do more to provide greater resources to overcome the various obstacles that they face in supporting the health decisions of pregnant people.
