At this very moment thousands of activists are at the Texas Capitol to stand with Texas women and the right to control their own bodies. While many of us cannot be there, there still ways to show your support of the efforts.
Here three organizations to support dedicated to reproductive access in the state of Texas.
The Lilith Fund for Reproductive Equality assists Texas women in exercising their fundamental right to abortion by removing barriers to access. Lilith provides direct financial assistance and counseling to empower women seeking to terminate an unwanted pregnancy; and education and outreach within the community about reproductive rights
The Texas Equal Access Fund recognizes that many women in North Texas who would choose abortion are unable to because of financial hardship, social pressure, or a lack of local providers. We are dedicated to helping women with a demonstrated need to pay for their abortions.
Whole Woman’s Health Stigma Relief Fund is committed to being that local voice within the communities for women and aiding in the reducing stigma related to abortion. We will continue to diligently build connections within our communities to encourage citizens to empower themselves to make their own reproductive choices. No woman should have to forgo an abortion because they cannot afford a hotel room or the gasoline involved with traveling. The Stigma Relief Fund’s goal is to address these logistical issues and aid women through this process.
