The Chicago Abortion Fund (CAF) fights to overturn economic barriers to reproductive choice. Through direct service, CAF assists women in paying for safe abortion services. In partnership with the women we serve, CAF engages and mobilizes low-income and poor women to become advocates for expanded reproductive access.
Our funding hotline is a key part of making sure a woman has access to a safe, legal abortion. When a woman calls our hotline seeking funding, she has been turned away from emergency rooms, other providers, Medicaid won't cover her, and the clock is ticking.
Last year, we funded 100 women. With $50,000, we can fund at least 200.
- Our average grant to a woman is $300.
- The average cost of an abortion by the time a woman calls us is $3000.
Your investment in reproductive justice can make choice possible for a woman.
