Anna* is a 15-year-old high school student who is passionate about tap dancing and plans to attend college to study fashion. She* recently learned that she is 28 weeks pregnant. Anna is scheduled to have an abortion TODAY (Sunday Feb. 14, 2016), and due to the advanced stage of her pregnancy, it will cost $15,500. Anna and her mother are able to contribute $1500.
We first heard from Anna on Tuesday. Since then, we have been inspired by the collaborative support offered by other regional abortion funds, who have collectively pledged $2,300.
We need your help to raise the remaining $11,200. PLEASE CLICK HERE TO MAKE A DONATION FOR ANNA’S APPOINTMENT TODAY!
While NYAAF does not typically ask our supporters to fund specific clients, we are making an exception in this case for two reasons: First, Anna’s need is URGENT—if she is unable to keep her appointment this Sunday, she will not be permitted to terminate her pregnancy at all under current laws and clinic restrictions. Second, we want to support Anna without compromising our ability to help the hundreds of other clients who will call us this year.
Your pledge of $20, $50, or $100 today will allow Anna to safely end her pregnancy and have the opportunity to fully pursue her dreams. It will also ensure that NYAAF can continue to fund the many other clients who rely on our support.
Thank you for standing with us in protecting access for all who need it. We are so grateful for you! Please consider sharing this message with your friends and family via email or social media.
