89 Abortion Funds That You Can Give To Immediately

Today, I am numb.

I haven’t been able to wrap my head around today’s Supreme Court ruling without a fresh wave of nausea. We all knew it was coming, right? We knew back in May when  an early leaked draft of today’s decision first circulated. We knew in the years before that. We knew that the end game has always been Roe v. Wade.

It was always coming, and today was the day.

In today’s decision to the case Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization — which is about a Mississippi law banning abortion at 15 weeks — in unambiguous language, and a 6-3 majority vote, the Court overturned Roe, as well as another case, Planned Parenthood v. Casey, which upheld the central tenet of Roe but allowed states to restrict access as long as they did not place “an undue burden” on people seeking abortions. From the decision, “We therefore hold that the Constitution does not confer a right to abortion. Roe and Casey must be overruled, and the authority to regulate abortion must be returned to the people and their elected representatives.” (You can read a full annotated version of the decision yourself.)

What comes next is overwhelming and can feel impossible. But what I do know is this — the fight is not done. It can’t be. 50 years ago we were promised a legal right our bodies and a group of extremists made it their life’s work to have that right taken back away. But if they can dedicate their lives to undoing the work of Roe, then I can surely dedicate mine to making sure those rights become enshrined, protected, and never taken away again.

I wanted to highlight at least one very specific, actionable thing you can do right now. 

This post was originally written in 2021 and has been updated and republished twice this year, including today, because there is no way off this rollercoaster except to rely on ourselves, our advocacy, bear down and to fight.


What Is an Abortion Fund?

Over the last few months, you’ve probably seen calls to support abortion funds, and you’ll probably see more in the days and months to come. They provide financial and/or material (transportation, mental health care, volunteer assistance, etc) support to those who need an abortion. They’ve been around for decades. For those most vulnerable who need immediate aid now, and this is tangible way to show up and support.

You can donate (or learn how to volunteer!) with the organizations listed below.

As of today, right now, in about half of the states in the U.S., abortion has become severely restricted or outlawed. I have put an [*] next to states where abortions are restricted, likely to become prohibited, or where the future of abortion restrictions is uncertain in the days and weeks to come. I have put an an [**] next to states where, as of this writing, abortions are already banned. This comes from New York Times reporting, and as they update their states list, I will also update ours.

The purpose of this system is to draw attention to the inequity in safe abortion access in this country, and who is left with the least amount of resources available in light of today’s decision (and for many people, long before that, too). If you live in one of the 21 states, and DC, where the right to abortion is legally protected — recognize your privilege, and support beyond the guaranteed safety net your community.


Give to an Abortion Fund Today

Some of these funds have “women” in their title. Not all people who are in need of abortions are women. However, in the interest of providing the widest breadth of information to those who may be in need, in parts of the country where access is in immediate jeopardy, we only included funds that have “women” in the title if there was no other fund available in that state. We recognize it’s a delicate line, and one not one we take lightly. Safe abortion access is critical for trans patients, and should always be a priority.

  1. Wisconsin Freedom Fund doesn’t help all of wisconsin. Women’s Medical Fund is a good organization and provides abortion for all genders. Excluding it from this list because of a gendered name is pretty ridiculous.
