How Yellowhammer Fund Is Keeping Abortion Accessible: A Rewire News Roundup

Rewire News has been doing fantastic coverage of the impact of COVD-19 on abortion access. Over the last month the site has tracked states that have limited clinic access, practical support groups helping patients get to new cities for care, and the growing crisis as lack of legal abortion access pushes patients into later procedures – the only kind some states will even allow.

Yellowhammer Fund has been honored to be included in some of that coverage. You can read a few stories mentioning the fund:

Sadness Beyond Tears’ as COVID-19 Abortion Ban Brings Chaos to Texas Clinics” Paige Alexandria

“How to Get an Abortion During the COVID-19 Pandemic” Paige Alexandria

And, as a bonus bit of fun, get to know Yellowhammer Fund’s client services manager, Kelsea McLain, as she explains how life has changed in front of abortion clinics since COVID-19 began.

Donate to Support in Reproductive Justice in Alabama

The Yellowhammer Fund envisions a society in which reproductive decisions are made free from coercion, shame, or state interference, a society in which individuals and communities have autonomy in making healthy choices regarding their bodies and their futures.

As members of the National Network of Abortion Funds, we’ve funded abortion care and practical support for Alabamians since 2018.
