Did you know that the average cost of a surgical abortion in the US is $495? Y'all, that's absurd. And it's absurd to have to come up with that kind of cash when you're likely not planning on that expense. I am bowling to raise money for Chicago Abortion Fund, a group who helps offset the cost of this vital care for those who need it most. Please help me help others and donate what you are able, and thanks!

Whoo! We are knocking down pins for justice!
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 people who needed an abortion. With $20,000, we can fund at least 170.
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.
