The Abortion Assistance Blog has received amazing support over the past three months. Since July, 125 individual people in the US and Canada have offered some form of support to those seeking a safe, legal abortion, whether it be a ride to the clinic, a couch for recovering after the procedure, or a shoulder to lean on. This is a fantastic start, and we are far from finished.
Here are the updated scores!
- California is in the lead, now with 11 offers for rides to and/or from the clinic!
- Texas and California are tied for lodging, with 5 offers each for a place to sleep for those traveling overnight, or just a couch to rest on after the appointment
- California now has 6 offers for babysitting during the appointment
We still have 9 states and 8 Canadian provinces/territories left to cover, so keep telling your friends and family about this resource! Here are the areas waiting for at least one offer:
- South Carolina
- South Dakota
- New Brunswick
- Newfoundland & Labrador
- Northwest Territories
- Prince Edward Island
Even if your area isn’t on the list, it still may only have one offer for help! If you or someone you know can provide transportation, lodging, child care, a listening ear, or funding for appointments, birth control, or transportation, please contact the Abortion Assistance Blog.
Big thanks to everyone who’s sent in offers so far!
