Organizations fighting for abortion rights are calling on supporters to donate, following the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, ending nearly 50 years of abortion rights protection nationwide.
The Supreme Court decision means abortion rights are left up to the states — some won't see a change in access, while others will ban it completely.
Here are some organizations asking for support to fight the decision or provide access to abortion for women in states where it will be outlawed.
National Network of Abortion Funds
This organization allows givers to donate in one place and have their money spread between 80 local abortion funds.
The money goes toward "funding, travel, lodging, and other wrap-around supports," to make "abortion access possible for anyone, where ever they live and where ever they are seeking care," according to its website.
The nation's largest abortion provider is asking its supporters for donations so it can "continue to do everything we can to protect abortion access."
"To anyone today who is scared, or angry, or determined, know this — 17 million Planned Parenthood supporters proudly stand with you," Alexis McGill Johnson, the organization's president, said. "We will rebuild and reclaim the freedom that is ours. We won't go back. And we won't back down."
Every dollar donated to Planned Parenthood through June 30 will be matched up to a total of $250,000, according to its website.
National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL)
NARAL Pro-Choice America is made up of 2.5 million members who advocate, educate and mobilize around abortion rights, according to its website. The organization also focuses on other related issues, including access to contraception and parental leave.
Center for Reproductive Rights
The Center for Reproductive Rights focuses on law and advocacy to fight for abortion rights.
The organization represented Jackson Women's Health Organization in the now-landmark case (Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization) that ultimately led the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade.
"This decision is a devastating setback, but the work is far from over," The Center wrote in a statement. "The Center will continue to advocate in all ways to advance stronger legal protections for abortion in the future. In addition to working to advance the Women's Health Protection Act in the U.S. Congress, the Center will work to build stronger legal protections in state constitutions and state laws, and defend against further regression in the courts — working toward a future where every person has access to the abortion care they need."
