Review for Feminist Womens Health Center, Yakima, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Bev Whipple saw the need in Yakima and greater Central Washington for accessible abortion services and started the Feminist Women's Health Clinic, bringing affordable reproductive health care including abortion to a population of women who otherwise would have had no options. FWHC has grown in clinics and services while maintaining a steady presence in Central Washington. Other abortion providers have come and gone. FWHC recognizes the constraints of poverty, language, and access and strives to make women's health care available to all women in our community. Bev has continued to be a leader in keeping abortion safe and available. As a volunteer I feel privileged to support this arganization that empowers women at the most fundamental level.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I joined them in a rally last year mourning George Tiller's murder. It is telling to me that Bev and Clinic members organized and spoke at an event many women felt to frightened to attend in today's climate of fear.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

their unwavering message that women should have control of their bodies and lives

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

caring and professional

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

provide access and education to women regarding their personal and reproductive health creating a stronger community.
