Donate to the Abortion Access Bowl-a-thon!


Feministing is proud to be fielding a team for this year’s National Abortion Access Bowl-a-thon. Click here to support our team and make a real difference in people’s lives.

Here at Feministing, we don’t ask for money lightly. But we do have deeply held beliefs on human rights and reproductive justice and we are not afraid to act on them. 

For those of you who don’t know about the New York Abortion Access Fund, their mission is to provide grants to people who want abortions and can’t afford to pay for them. As you know too well as a reader of Feministing, too often abortions are technically legal, but in accessible in practice. This is by design: they are expensive, and in some states they are very difficult to obtain: in that sense, abortion in this country is often experienced as more of a privilege than a right. NYAAF tries to combat that problem by granting money to folks who need it, often at very short notice. For over ten years, this remarkable organization has been making it possible for New Yorkers to exercise their right to choose if they don’t have the money. In past years, this NYAAF  fundraiser has been a huge success. Help us make it so another time around?

Giving $10, $20 or $50 to the help someone get an abortion they can’t otherwise afford is one thing I know, for a fact, will make this world a better place. For that person, it’s huge. Donate here!
