According to the Guttmacher Institute, the majority of abortions performed in the US are provided at independent clinics, like us. Unfortunately, an alarming number of independent clinics have now shut down and/or are floundering as a result of large, well-funded organizations that are against people’s reproductive freedom.
Independent clinics now need to rely on donations from individuals and communities to keep functioning. Rapidly rising expenses include supplies, rent, and the costs associated with the dedicated employees that work in these institutions. It is not often known that insurance companies outright deny coverage to doctors and facilities solely because they offer abortions. When the select few firms do offer protection for these providers, it is at a much-inflated premium, in effect penalizing these clinics specifically for providing abortions. Additionally, there are a myriad of other factors that are associated with this endeavor. With this Gofundme, we are reaching out in hope to raise awareness of these ever-rising expenses, and in turn seek financial assistance from our community to aid in our clinics sustainability. Unfortunately, independent clinics such as our self are not supported by donations from large corporations and/or governmental agencies.
We have devoted our professional lives to ensuring that people in need have access to the greatest care available. We need your assistance more than ever to keep this goal in sight. We believe that by seeking your support, through donations, we will be able to meet the needs of keeping our clinic's doors open, and in turn be able to provide care for those who are in need of our services.
People flourish when they have accessible abortion care with dignity, and support. Consequently creating healthier, stronger families and more robust communities.
We have firsthand experience with the positive influence of compassionate and accessible abortion care, and its effect on individuals, families, and communities. As we have done for the last half a century, we will continue to strive and intensify our efforts and commitment to ensure safe access to abortions that are provided with dignity and without apology.
Please consider making a donation now and stand shoulder-to-shoulder with us, so that we can continue providing the sexual and reproductive healthcare our community deserves.
