The cost of a first-trimester abortion can be more than a low-income family lives on in a month. Ohioans forgo food, risk eviction, and pawn their possessions as they attempt to raise money for abortion care. Some are forced to continue the pregnancy, abandon their education, and stay trapped in poverty. On average, an individual receives about $100 from Women Have Options. Many women who receive WHO/O funds have managed to save almost enough money to pay for their abortion costs on their own but just need a bit more—just $10 or $20—to cover the total.
While we receive grants from national foundations, most of our resources come from individual donors and events. Your support can make all the difference by helping women afford the reproductive health care they need.
