I am so amazed at the number of people who have submitted offers to help with transportation, lodging, child care, funding, and moral support to people seeking abortions. The pro-choice community is a beautiful thing.
Another week has gone by, so here’s the update:
- California still leads, now with 7 offers for rides to/from the clinic
- Texas still has the most offers for lodging, with 5 people offering somewhere to stay for people traveling overnight, or for those who need a place to rest after the procedure
- Michigan has come out in front with 4 people willing to babysit! Go Michigan!
We’re covering more ground every day. We now have offers in from 43 states and 6 Canadian provinces! Here are the areas still waiting for at least one offer of help:
- New Brunswick
- Newfoundland & Labrador
- Northwest Territories
- Nova Scotia
- Prince Edward Island
Even if your area isn’t on the list, it may have only one offer so far! If you or someone you know can provide transportation, lodging, child care, moral support, or funding for someone’s abortion or travel costs, please contact the Abortion Assistance Blog through the Ask or Submit boxes, email, or Twitter.
