"What do you do if you need an abortion but you are too poor to afford one? For many women, the answer is: you turn to the only people who are willing and able to help—abortion funds." — Melissa Harris-Perry, 11/16/2013
In 2011 and 2012, states enacted record numbers of abortion restrictions, and abortion funds are now seeing the effect of these restrictions firsthand. Over the weekend, Melissa Harris-Perry spoke with Trina Stout of The CAIR Project, an all-volunteer abortion fund that helps women and girls in Washington, Idaho, Oregon and Alaska.

Congratulations to Sara "Sparo" Slater, this week's National Abortion Access Bowl-a-Thon Page of the Week Winner!
Sara is bowling this weekend with the CAIR Project in Seattle, which helps women in Washington, Idaho, Oregon, and Alaska--Alaska!--get the abortions they need.
Her page was nominated because she really puts it all on the line: her story begins, "I was 16 years old and realized I couldn't remember my last period..."

This entire team was nominated for "the nicknames and the mug shots, of course!"
The Feminist Drinking Club is bowling for Washington State's CAIR Project and has set an ambitious goal of raising $5,000 for abortion access -- that's going to go a long way to helping women in Washington, Idaho, Alaska, and Oregon, the area that this fund covers. Way to go, bowlers!
