Mind the gap: September is Abortion Access Month

What does it really take to get an abortion in America?

September is Abortion Access Month, and an important time to think about this question. As it turns out, it takes quite a bit to get an abortion in this country, and as states across the nation pile on waiting periods, ultrasound requirements, bans, and other barriers, accessing safe and legal abortion care is becoming more difficult by the day. One of the biggest hurdles for folks seeking abortion care is the fact that, for many, it is quite simply unaffordable. Who are the folks that cannot afford abortion care?

Outside of our paid gigs, we serve on the ...
