Getting abortions is harder than it’s been since any point since the 1970’s. Grateful to have our own Candace O’Brien quoted in this Fast Company article along with major players helping patients get care. Special shout out to Midwest Access Coalition, who y’all should be following, too.

“People are struggling to make ends meet,” says Candace O’Brien, who works at the Yellowhammer Fund, which offers financial support to people seeking abortions in Alabama. “And that [has] added a barrier to abortion access for people because now they have a more restrictive financial barrier. They have the geographical barriers because people have to drive an hour or more to get to a clinic depending on where they live. And then you have childcare being an issue too, because they now have the children at home and have to find people to take care of them.”
