At Third Cookie, we believe in a woman's right to make personal decisions regarding family planning and health care. Since the Supreme Court overturned Roe v Wade in 2022, abortion access has become increasingly difficult for women across the United States. Many states have passed laws banning abortion or making it extremely difficult to procure one. This has left many women in a very difficult position. So what can you do to help? Here are 5 ways you can make a difference for women seeking abortion care.

Donate to Organizations That Provide Abortion Funds:

Many organizations help women pay for abortion care, including the National Network of Abortion Funds, the Yellowhammer Fund, and the Lilith Fund. You can donate to these organizations to help women in need pay for their abortion care.

Volunteer with or Donate to Your Local Abortion Fund:

Many abortion funds also need volunteers to help with tasks like staffing abortion hotlines, providing transportation to and from clinics, and doing administrative work. You can also donate money or supplies to your local abortion fund.

Housing for Women Who Need to Travel for Abortion Care:

If you live near a state that has banned abortion or made it difficult to procure one, you can help by opening your home to women who need to travel for abortion care. This can be a big help, as many women cannot afford the cost of travel. Organizations like the National Abortion Federation can help connect you with women needing housing.

Provide Childcare for Women Seeking Abortion Care:

If you have childcare experience, you could offer to babysit or provide childcare for women seeking abortion care. This would allow them to focus on their abortion care without worrying about their children.

Contact Your Local Officials

If you want to help support abortion rights, one of the best things you can do is contact your local politicians. You can find your local representatives' contact information on websites like VoteSmart.org or Congress.gov. When you contact them, tell them that you support abortion rights and that you want them to vote in favor of abortion rights legislation. You can also attend town hall meetings or rallies to show your support for abortion rights. Taking action can help ensure that women have the right to make their own decisions about their bodies and health care.

The overturn of Roe v Wade has had a devastating impact on the ability of women to access safe and legal abortions. You can help fight for women's rights by volunteering with or donating to organizations that provide abortion care support, including the ACLU, Planned Parenthood, and NARAL Pro-Choice America. You can also offer your home as a place for out-of-town women seeking an abortion, provide childcare for women seeking abortions, and contact your local officials to let them know that you support access to safe and legal abortions. Every action counts in the fight to protect reproductive freedom. Will you join me?
