Come Cheer on the Double Strike Doulas!

When: Saturday, April 20th from 6:00pm to 8:00pm

Can’t come out and play? That’s okay, we’ll catch you at the next Salon Series. But feel free to make a donation to support those in need. 🙂

But wait, why are you raising funds to pay for abortions? Can’t people pay for them on their own?
Unfortunately, due to the Hyde Amendment, no federal funds can be used to pay for abortions, and with fewer and fewer insurance carriers paying for them (and many don’t have insurance), lots of folks who want abortions have to pay out of pocket or simply can’t afford them. Not to mention the amount of money it costs to travel to a clinic these days! Take a look at the infographic from the Guttmacher Institute and another from the Third Wave Foundation to learn what it really costs to have an abortion.

Serious question, how many times have you seen anatomy photos with Black women and Black babies in the womb? At the doctors office, medical books, anywhere?

This image is not only beautiful but it's POWERFUL @ebereillustrate MORE OF THIS PLEASE😍

This is one reason that keeping abortion legal is not enough. It's already extremely difficult for many people -- even in CA -- to arrange funding, travel, childcare, etc. It's also why we do what we do. When things are already that hard, it's vital to have a support system.
