Review for Womens Reproductive Rights Assistance Project Wrrap, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As important as it is to support organizations struggling to keep abortion legal and prevent the sort of anti-abortion laws that are being passed by the hundreds, it is the women who need help today, right now, that get left behind. WRRAP takes up that challenge, providing monetary assistance for thousands of women all around the country. With only one part-time staff member, WRRAP is able to give more than 90% of every dollar it raises toward helping women and girls who are making difficult decisions, strggling to keep their families together, and facing increasing legal obstacles every day.

Review for Womens Reproductive Rights Assistance Project Wrrap, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

WRRAP is an incredible organization. I was first interested in supporting WRRAP because it provides timely help to women who need a safe abortion or emergency contraception now. Legal and legislative efforts to keep abortion access available are important but do not help the woman who is pregnant today, unable to pay her rent, keep her job, avoid an abusive partner or otherwise deal with continuing her pregnancy. Staffed almost exclusively by volunteers, WRRAP is able to give 90% of its donations to the women (and girls) they help. it is one of only a few organizations to provide assistance on a nationwide basis.
