Review for FEMINIST ABORTION NETWORK INC , Yakima, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Feminist Abortion Network, FAN, clinics across the country were founded in the early years after Roe v Wade by feminists who wanted to make sure their local community had abortion care. It was different back in those days, the 1970's, only the Planned Parenthoods in big cities offered abortion. FAN members brought abortion to small and medium size towns. Grassroots, early feminism. The kind that said: we need an abortion clinic in our community, and then set out to make it happen, without asking anyone's permission. FAN clinics were founded on a shoe-string, but with sky-high commitment to supporting women's choices and making care accessible to all. Which is still true today. Honoring and Trusting Women is what happens every day inside the clinics operated by the 14 FAN members, the 14 nonprofit feminist abortion providing organizations in 12 states across the country.

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & I am a founder of FAN.
