Statement by Yamani Hernandez on Cyber Attack Targeting the National Network of Abortion Funds Website

The cyber-attack disrupting our website has blocked online information about abortion funds, creating another barrier for those who have decided to have an abortion and in need of financial support. For many of our clients, being connected to an abortion fund case manager is the difference between getting the care they need and being denied that care.

We Stand With Planned Parenthood.

#StandwithPPPlanned Parenthood clinics are critical providers of care for people seeking reproductive healthcare, and in particular, the people who call abortion funds every day. Countless individuals who need help paying for abortion care rely on Planned Parenthood clinics for safe and affordable abortions, contraceptives, and cancer screenings. For many, Planned Parenthood provides the only healthcare check-ups they are able to afford. We understand that a threat to Planned Parenthood is a threat to abortion access, period. We must stand up for everyone's right to get the care they need. Take action and #StandwithPP.

Our Statement of Solidarity with Baltimore Protestors

The National Network of Abortions Funds stands in solidarity with Baltimore, and communities across the country who seek safe and equitable neighborhoods for their families. We know reproductive justice is predicated on the ability to have children if, when, and how you choose, and critically, to be able to raise those children in an environment where they are safe from violence at the hands of the state. When families of color forgo having children because they aren’t sure they will come home safely at night, when children are made parent-less because of police brutality, and when financial means and opportunities are withheld from communities of color, it’s a reproductive justice issue. The very real threat of police and state violence has an impact on communities of color, and how they have, or don’t have, children, and the chances in life those children get.

Bowl-a-Thon page of the week: Persephone's Pin Pounders for the Kentucky Support Network!

Persephone's Pin PoundersOur page of the week is celebrating Louisville's clinic escort team Persephone's Pin Pounders, bowling for Kentucky Support Network. When anti-choice protesters began calling one of these escorts "Persephone, Queen of Hell," this team didn't back down. Now they're nominated "because they've taken all the anti-choice trash talk they put up with daily when escorting outside our local clinic, and embraced it to create their bowling team! Their page is even complete with punny pics, and a lovely rendering of one team member as Persephone, Queen of Hell herself! Talk about turning negativity into positivity, eh? Our clinic escorts are MAGIC."
