Dear A Fund Supporter,
In the wake of the Dobbs decision and bans on abortion in Kentucky, A Fund has changed the way we assist
abortion patients, who must now travel to states where abortion is legal—to Illinois and beyond.
In addition to setting up monthly renewable block grants with two clinics in southern Illinois, we have
entered into an agreement with the Kentucky Health Justice Network (KHJN) hotline which provides
information and referrals to abortion callers. We are now pledging up to $20,000 per month for Kentucky
hotline callers in need of funding at clinics in VA, DC, MD, NC, CO and other states. KHJN volunteers make
pledges, on behalf of A Fund, to clinics for Kentucky patients and then the clinics bill A Fund directly after
the abortion care is provided.
A Fund also promotes access to emergency contraception and to long acting reversible contraception. and
is looking for ways to make these methods more accessible to low-income women, now that the UL Family
Planning Clinic is no longer able to do so.
[ As we deplore the oppressive restrictions that our state has placed on access to abortion, we
know that such measures never have, and never will, put an end to abortion. Indeed, abortions
tend to occur at a higher rate in states that restrict or prohibit them than in those that make them
accessible. Abortions will continue to be needed and their cost will increase—a cost that falls
most heavily on the most vulnerable women and families.]
