Twitter Q&A with Stephanie Poggi and abortion funds
September 29th, 2013
Join Stephanie Poggi, Executive Director of the National Network of Abortion Funds, and abortion fund advocates from the front lines in a public conversation about the damaging impact of four decades of banning Medicaid funding for abortion and the role that abortion funds are playing in a renewed movement to restore public funding.
This conversation will illuminate the work abortion funds do, the impact they have, and our hopes for a future where no one needs to call an abortion fund to get the basic health care they need. We'll have an open-ended dialogue and address these questions and more:
Q1: If you're with an abortion fund, tell us a bit about it. Where is it? How long has it been around?
Q2: We know that people go to great lengths to pay for abortion. Can you name some of the sacrifices they make?
Q3: The Hyde Amendment has been disastrous. Any predictions on how the Affordable Care Act will affect abortion access?
Q4: If the Hyde Amendment were overturned tomorrow, what impact would abortion funds see?
Q5: What are abortion funds currently doing to actually end funding bans?
