Why donate to abortion support funds?
It's already difficult to access abortion care in Kentucky. There are only two clinics in the entire state, and both are in Louisville. That can mean traveling hundreds of miles for some people. Additionally, Kentucky law requires patients have a medically-unnecessary virtual or in-person visit with their provider 24 hours before they can receive an abortion. Extra visits can require more time off work and more lodging for people who must travel. On top of that, 60% of people who get an abortion already have families. Traveling for multiple days can require these families to pay for childcare, miss work, and lose wages. Last, it is illegal for private insurance companies and public assistance programs to cover any medical expenses related to abortion care. These layered expenses disproportionately harm the most vulnerable people because 75% of people who seek abortion care live at or below the poverty line.
