This year, and every year, we’re thankful for you!
This year has been an incredible one for The Jane Fund. With an influx of new supporters, and the wisdom of those who have been funding abortions for years, we are full of gratitude and excited for the future.
With that in mind, please donate to The Jane Fund tomorrow, Giving Tuesday. You can make a one-time donation, or set up a recurring donation to support us all year long. As a 501 (c) (3) charity, your donation to The Jane Fund is tax deductible.
Election Wrap-Up: Massachusetts and Beyond
Midterm election results left us feeling energized. We were thrilled to join the Yes on 3 coalition to protect trans rights across the Commonwealth and to send a message to the rest of the nation that trans rights are reproductive rights. We were also thrilled to see pro-choice, first-time candidates Tram Nguyen and David LeBeouf both beat anti-choice incumbents for seats in the MA House.
While this new generation of Massachusetts leadership, and trailblazers like Harriet Chandler and Jim McGovern, have committed to protecting abortion rights in our state, other states are slashing access to abortion .
The Jane Fund’s weekly budget includes funds for out-of-state callers. That money is gone by Monday afternoon. Here’s an overview of what those callers are facing:
- In Alabama, a ballot initiative granted full legal rights to fertilized eggs, meaning people can be prosecuted for obtaining or performing abortions in the state.
- In West Virginia, the state voted to change their constitution to include language that no longer supports the right to abortion access.
- And in Ohio, the House just passed a 6-week abortion bill. If passed by the Ohio Senate and signed by incoming Governor-Elect Mike DeWine, this law would ban abortion after the six-week mark, before most people even know they are pregnant.
We’re steeling ourselves for more calls from these states , but we can’t help them without your support. Even $25 make a huge difference in helping someone access abortion care. You can also support abortion funds in Alabama, West Virginia, and Ohio directly.
Be on the lookout for invitations to our Annual Meeting, where we’ll share our vision for 2019. Thank you for being a part of our mission!
