The Eastern Massachusetts Abortion Fund is a volunteer-run organization that works to ensure that all people living in or traveling to eastern Massachusetts have access to abortion.

The EMA Fund provides people with financial counseling and with money for their abortions. They help them get onto MassHealth quickly or find doctors that will take their insurance. They negotiate with abortion providers for discounts, and they help callers pay for bus or train tickets, childcare, and translation services.

On April 30th, I’ll be supporting the EMA Fund by participating in their 5th Annual “Triathlon” (of eating pizza, doing karaoke, and playing board games). I’m fundraising for abortion access because I believe every person deserves the opportunity to shape their own life. I trust them to make the best decisions for themselves and their families and that they are the experts on their own lives. I believe that abortion access is a matter of social justice, economic fairness and human rights.

When you support the Eastern Massachusetts Abortion Fund Triathlon, you're not only helping someone access necessary medical care, you're giving them back the opportunity to pursue their hopes and dreams. You are ensuring that no one is forced to carry a pregnancy to term because they couldn't come up with bus fare to a distant clinic, or because they had the wrong insurance or were short $100.

My personal goal is to raise $650. Your support is crucial. Your donation of $10, $15, or $20 will help me support our community when they need it the most. Even a small donation can make a big impact for the people who call EMA.

Check out my fundraising page http://bowlathon.blueskysweet.com/sarah#.VPRvKrPF9O8 and please consider giving what you can.

Thank you for your support!

Received. Thank you!!! Should I make the donation to EMA in your honor (I could just do first name), or would you prefer it be anonymous there?

I'm not sure how that would work practically! I'm not super familiar with the judicial bypass system in this state. I'll do some research. If I knew a teen now that needed support navigating the judicial system I'd call the Eastern Massachusetts Abortion Fund.

Heh, well, you certainly can ask me if you have any questions, but if your questions are about CHS courses there's a particularly good chance that I'll have a useful answer.

Hi friends! The bill to license Certified Professional Midwives (CPMs) in our state could pass this session, but we're out of money to pay our lobbyist. So the Massachusetts Midwives Alliance (MMA) is running a crowd funding campaign.

The MMA is a professional trade organization promoting the modern midwifery model which uses evidence-based and family centered practices to provide safe and fulfilling prenatal, birth and postpartum care to families across Massachusetts. A donation to MMA supports our efforts to pass legislation that would create licensing for CPMs in Massachusetts, and can also be earmarked for the MMA Midwifery Course scholarship fund for women of color and for financial need to help meet the growing demand for midwives who are able to serve diverse communities. 

Check out the GoFundMe page for more details about how your contribution can help make midwifery history! http://www.gofundme.com/6sg72o

This week on the +Pagan Families blog I'm celebrating the one year anniversary of publishing my ebook Birth On The Labyrinth Path: Sacred Embodiment in The Childbearing Year. I'm giving away a copy of the book and Wild Mother Arts is helping me celebrate by giving away labyrinth birth jewelry. If you've read my book this would be an awesome time to leave a review at Amazon or Goodreads or wherever you write reviews. Thanks to all my friends who've helped me put this book out into the world!
