Executive Director of Women Have Options

I believe that we must work towards a society where all people have the means and opportunity to plan their futures and families with dignity, respect and community support. I believe abortion is a human right and in times like these we must do all we can to make sure people don't fall through the cracks.

  • Taco or Beer Challenge

    $725.00 raised
    GOAL: $5,000.00

    August through September, join our online taco or beer challenge to raise funds for abortion access and immigrant / border justice!

    For ToBC 2019 we will be doing things a little bit differently. The challenge will be the same. The difference will be where your donation dollars are going. While eating delicious tacos, a food that comes from Mexico, we will be fundraising for and uplifting local and national organizations that are doing immigrant justice / border justice work at this, one of the most difficult times for immigrants in our country’s history.

    We will be fundraising for one of our favorite abortion funds, La Frontera Fund! They are located in the Rio Grande Valley and their day to day work is very much at the intersection of reproductive justice and immigrant justice.

    We will also be fundraising for Solidarity with Edith Espinal. Edith has been a part of the Columbus, Ohio community for over 20 years and is currently forced to live in sanctuary because of cruel and unjust deportation policies. Edith's family and community intend to keep Edith home and hopefully set a precedent for how cases like hers are handled both in state and nationally!

    *More details about orgs we are uplifting during ToBC coming soon!

    And big news, WE'RE DOING A MATCH! WHO/O will be matching all donations up to $5000!!

    Thanks for being awesome and directly helping to support both reproductive and immigrant justice locally and beyond!

    It’s easy!

    1. Eat a taco or drink a beer
    2. Donate here!
    3. Take a picture or video of you eating tacos or drinking beer
    4. Post on social media and challenge 3 friends to donate (and eat tacos or drink beer) and tag photos with #tobc19

  • WHO/O’s statement of support for clinics facing closure in Ohio

    Abortion clinics in Ohio are faced with threat of closure due to state policies that require clinics to have a patient-transfer agreement with a private hospital. Our legislators are placing politics above women’s health, and, as result, both Toledo and Cincinnati may lose their only remaining clinics, making Cincinnati the largest metropolitan area in the U.S. without an abortion provider.

    Abortion clinics in Ohio are faced with threat of closure due to state policies that require clinics to have a patient-transfer agreement with a private hospital. Our legislators are placing politics above women’s health, and, as result, both Toledo and Cincinnati may lose their only remaining clinics, making Cincinnati the largest metropolitan area in the U.S. without an abortion provider.

    As we enter the final quarter of 2015, Women Have Options is continuing our financial support to patients of Planned Parenthood of Southwest Ohio, Women’s Med Center of Cincinnati & Dayton, and Capital Care Network of Toledo. WHO/O is Ohio’s only statewide abortion fund, and we will continue supporting clinics as they fight these burdensome, unnecessary state regulations that have nothing to do with protecting patient safety and everything to do with outlawing abortion. Legislators made these laws, not doctors.

    The following is WHO/O’s statement of support sent to clinics fighting to remain open:

    Please know we support you during this difficult time as you fight against burdensome, unnecessary state regulations. We are sending the fourth quarter grant with hope that you will continue serving clients indefinitely. If for some reason you are unable to operate for the entire fourth quarter, we ask that you please let us know; return unused Women Have Options funds, if they exist; and still send an end-of-quarter report, though we will understand if it arrives later than the regular deadline. You have our unwavering support as you provide much-needed services to the community.
    Our mission is to provide financial assistance to women so they can afford their reproductive choice. Thank you to each and every supporter of Women Have Options and to the clinics and staff who make choice a reality.

  • Events

    Like every non-profit fund, Women Have Options hosts fundraising events every year.

    Each spring, we participate in the National Abortion Access Bowl-a-Thon, sponsored by the National Network of Abortion Funds, where abortion funds across the country go bowling for choice. Local activists, pro-choice groups, and businesses form teams to raise money for abortion access—and then we celebrate with a bowling party!

    We also hold other events throughout the year—sometimes a wine tasting, sometimes a jewelry party, sometimes house parties, sometimes an annual meeting with our allies and supporters. Look below, join our mailing list or our Facebook page to find out what we’re planning, and how you can get involved.

    If you would like to host an event to raise money for WHO/O email us!
