Women's Medical Fund works to ensure access to safe abortion for women in Philadelphia. Like many states, Pennsylvania medical assistance (medicaid) doesn't cover abortion care. Medicare also doesn't cover abortion, so women who are most medically complicated and are likely to need more expensive medical care can have great difficulty accessing quality abortion care. WMF provides last dollar loans and grants to women to help pay for abortion care. Working with this organization I am reminded how much of a difference $25 or $50 can make for a woman and her family. I am always moved by the stories of clients who use this fund. While I support eventual full insurance coverage of abortion care, I am grateful that WMF is here now to help poor women access safe abortion care.
