Probably, Joseph, it's because this page is not so much "one-sided on a controversial issue" as it is the page of an organization whose very mission is to fund abortions for low-income women who are deprived of basic health care. It's rather pointless to argue about whether or not the organization should exist: it exists. The end.

What's glossy, stylin', and packed with powerful women? No, it's not a binder. It's the fall edition of our newly-designed newsletter, hot off the press!

"We need to focus on the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits Medicaid from funding abortion. And what this means is that people struggling to make ends meet have inferior health care to people with money--and health care includes abortion. We need to make sure that the Hyde Amendment is repealed so that poor people have the same access to health care as people with private insurance." - +Steph Herold of the New York Abortion Access Fund, featured on the Melissa Harris-Perry show this weekend.

ROCK WORLD ORPHANS's profile photo
 
ROCKWORLD ORPHANS exists to improve the quality and welfare of lives among OVC, and our main emphasize is to provide an education and learning environment to the OVC denied such at the loss of their bread winners and robbed of their rights which exposes then to various dangers such as economic, social and sexual exploitation. Through this we look at protecting the children abused, homeless as well as vulnerable, and encouraging them make practical education priority so as to reduce poverty and build communities from the practical things learnt and their gifts/ talents.

On our website and our Facebook page, we  invited abortion funds supporters to tell us why you give...and we were really touched by all of the responses. We think you will be, too.

Have you seen our poster? It was designed earlier this year to distribute to funds at our National Organizing Summit, and it's pretty gorgeous!

Story

We fight against unfair laws while helping women who need abortions today.
Introduction
The National Network of Abortion Funds works to make sure that all women and girls can get the abortions they seek. 

If you are a woman looking for help paying for an abortion, we are here today to help you get what you need. The abortion funds in our organization help women pay for abortions they can’t otherwise afford.

If you are an activist with an abortion fund, we are here to make sure that you have all the tools you need to help the women in your community.

If you are looking to get involved, we welcome you to join us as we work for fair laws that respect the lives and futures of all women. We are leading the fight for Medicaid coverage of abortion for women with low incomes. We also work to break down the barriers to abortion for immigrant women, young women, and women in jail and prison.
