NYAAF is going broke. NYAAF is one of the many abortion funds around the country that have served as a grassroots safety net for folks of all incomes who can’t afford the abortion procedures they need. NYAAF needs your help. We’re in a recession, which means way more need from folks looking for procedures.
You may be thinking, but I don’t live in New York. Why should I support NYAAF and not my local abortion fund? Well, ideally, you’d support both. But, the women who come to New York City for abortions are from all over the country, because NYC is one of the more permissive states when it comes to abortions and has a wealth of providers (comparatively). So people who need them later in their pregnancy (maybe because they didn’t realize they were pregnant, because they were trying to scrounge up the thousands of dollars to afford the procedure, because they were afraid to tell their partners/friends/parents) have to come to NYC, from all over the country, for their procedures.
Think about it. On top of the procedure costs, there are travel costs as well. Many of these people look to NYAAF for help–they are really a fund that serves folks needing abortions from all over the country.
The other great thing about NYAAF is that it’s volunteer run–which means almost all of what you donate goes straight to the folks who need it. Barely any administrative costs.
That’s where you come in. I just donated $25 to help NYAAF. Can you chip in?
It’s been a tough year for everyone, and especially low-income folks whProxy-Connection: keep-alive
e health care plans don’t cover the procedures they need (thanks Henry Hyde).
