BENEFITING: TRUST WOMEN FOUNDATION INC
Right now, in the US, 42% of women seeking abortions are at or below the federal poverty level ($10,830 for a single woman with no children). This is exacerbated by the fact that in 2011, Kansas barred private insurance from covering abortions—just 8 other states have the same restriction.
This means that expenses are entirely out of pocket for women here. We want to ensure that women are not going to be turned away because of $50. Restrictive laws like these only unfairly burden poor women. Help ensure that no woman has to be turned away.
In addition women face costs for travel, lost wages at work, and child care. Trust women to make decisions about their lives, families, and health.
Trust Women Foundation has opened South Wind Women’s Center, the only abortion provider in Wichita, and the only one in an almost 200 mile radius.
This facility means women in the Wichita area, and in western Kansas can be assured that, for the first time in nearly four years, they have quality abortion care that doesn't require a 3+ hour drive, as well as access to gynecological care in a judgment free environment.
