The Drop in Abortion Funding

A spike in support following Dobbs may be waning.

Pro-abortion organizations are reporting a “staggering drop off” in funding, according to a press release from the U.S.-based National Network of Abortion Funds. It seems that the spike in support for pro-abortion funds following the overturning of Roe v. Wade was from short-lived “rage” donations.

“Every single abortion fund” in the network—about 100 in total—has witnessed a drop in financial support, according to one director. Also, abortion is banned or restricted in 21 states, which means the funds are subject to higher abortion costs and travel expenses.   

For example, a fund in Mississippi went from paying for about 20 abortions a week to only two or three, while another fund in Tampa reported a 63% drop in funding in the year following Dobbs. Other funds in Ohio, Utah, and New Mexico have paused operations. 

While the fight for life is far from over, we can be encouraged that killing preborn children and reducing women’s healthcare to abortion are hard causes to sustain.
