93 ways to use your money to support access to abortion and reproductive rights

Click any link in this article to help women exercise their reproductive rights (and get abortions if that is their choice).

Money is political. I’ve said this so many times. To abstain from political thought or discourse is an inherently privileged position.

I’m not going to go into the devastation that I feel at what’s happened in my country this past week. The idea that the state can just take bodily autonomy away from more than one half of the populace, while at the same time crowing about the need to curtail “government overreach”, is the height of self-serving hypocrisy.

This is about control. This is about preserving the patriarchy. And this is about hatred, and, probably, revenge.

This is #MeToo for white men.

But it’s not very interesting to sit and howl at the sheer injustice of it all. I’m way more interested in action, in doing something productive.

And since I believe it’s our job, not merely to build our own financial wellness, but also to spread it to as many people as possible, how can we do that? One way is to use our money in the service of others who need it.

And it should be noted that a more just equitable nation and world is actually better for more people, not just an oligarchical few.

Did you know? Abortion restrictions at the state level cost the economy $105 billion a year.

So supporting women’s (and all child-bearing people’s) rights is not only the only humane and decent way to exist, but it also positively affects your wallet too. (If you needed that extra boost to get onboard, I don’t care, as long as you’re on board.)

So here are 93 ways you can use your money to help get access to reproductive care in general, and specifically, if they want to, to have abortions.

Donate to local abortion funds

National organizations are great, but supporting local funds will more effectively help the people who most need care.

How to decide where to donate

If you’re a little overwhelmed, you should be. There are tens of millions of adults of child-bearing age who need reproductive care. That amounts to a staggering amount of money on our already broken healthcare system.

So I would find a place close to you (or dear to you) that doesn’t value women’s bodies, and then donate to funds in those areas.

For example, while I live in Oregon, which has enshrined the right to abortion in our law books, Idaho, our neighbor to the east, is trying hard to make The Handmaid’s Tale into a documentary. So that’s where I want to donate my funds.

But something is better than nothing. Click a random link if need be.

Feel your grief, then take action

I’m not saying grief isn’t important. It is. Have your grief. Feel it intensely.

And then get up and do something. Our country just got a lot more bleak, and we need to fight back against the bleakness.
