Independent Providers Depend on You

These small, community-based clinics rely on individuals and communities to keep their doors open- they often don’t have the financial support, name recognition, and fundraising ability of national health centers or hospitals. Marketing is limited, and fundraising is typically at the local or grassroots level- mainly from small donors (like you!). 

The Keep Our Clinics campaign provides funding to independent clinics to cover tangible expenses like increased security, building repairs, PPE and hazard pay for staff working during the pandemic, legal fees, and community education and advocacy. Make a donation today to #KeepOurClinics! 

PROVIDING ESSENTIAL SERVICES

Independent abortion clinics are community-based reproductive health clinics. The people who staff these clinics are highly trained healthcare professionals who provide essential, time-sensitive abortion services, often to people with the fewest resources, who need them the most. In fact, independent clinics serve three out of every five patients in the U.S. each year who have an abortion.

The availability of abortion care throughout pregnancy depends on independent abortion clinics. Across the country, 62% of clinics that provide abortion care after the first trimester are independent. 

RESPONDING TO COMPOUNDING CRISES

The compounding crises of the continuing COVID-19 pandemic and increasingly hostile legislatures and judiciaries at the local, state and federal level make support for independent abortion providers more vital than ever.

Alarming Rate of Closures

Independent providers are the most vulnerable to anti-abortion attacks and legislation intended to close clinic doors or push abortion out of reach. Since 2015, more than a third of all independent abortion clinics have been forced to close their doors.

Adapting to the COVID-19 Pandemic

As clinics work to provide the safest environment for patients, anti-abortion extremists are attempting to use the pandemic as a means to add to the excessive over-regulation of abortion providers.

Stand Up for Independent Clinics

In the last six years, nearly a third of all independent abortion clinics have been forced to close their doors – greatly diminishing access to essential health care in America. The #KeepOurClinics campaign is bringing people together across the country – rallying support for the independent abortion providers that care for our communities.
