We as women all need, and deserve, better treatment than this. Any life –life meaning a human not a fetus which is not an infant or baby until born- is worth more than any amount of money. But the government and religious zealots feel otherwise, as we see. Abortion should be legal, safe and free. But because our health care system and our government are failing us, we as a people need to join together and help others, even if it’s only a dollar…
I talk about my abortion a lot but honestly had I not been able to have mine I would have taken my life. I note this so often because I think and fear for women and girls who are in the same shoes I was in, but in a state that doesn’t legally allow abortions. I was lucky enough to have the Lilith Fund and Whole Women’s Health help me fund my late term abortion. But the Lilith Fund was struggling before Texas government took women’s health care decades backwards. Now, they need your help more than ever.
However, this post is about a woman whom is going by the name of Alice.
Alice* needs your help
She’s already on her way to the clinic for a procedure she doesn’t know if she can afford.
Alice just learned about her pregnancy two days ago, and her Medicaid insurance will not cover an abortion. To add to the complexity, she has been on medicines for several months now that are dangerous to pregnancy. Now, she’s had to leave her children to travel to Washington, D.C., for an abortion she’s still $2,800 away from being able to afford.
Alice has raised money from friends and family, from her local abortion funds, and the clinic itself has even chipped in, but she still needs your help this weekend. Can she count on you?
