The New Orleans Abortion Fund is Here to Help
We affirm a person's right to control their body and their destiny, and work to ensure that all people have access to quality medical care, regardless of their economic situation.
Working with local medical providers, we provide compassionate and empowering assistance to patients seeking abortions who are unable to fully fund their abortion, and distribute pledges as available.
We help fill in the gap between what patients can afford and what they need to pay.
Here's how to support
We’re on the front lines fighting for reproductive justice. From volunteering to donating, there are various ways you can join us and defend Louisiana’s reproductive freedom.

Open Access, a bi-weekly web series produced by the New Orleans Abortion Fund, aims to engage advocates from local and statewide organizations through casual conversation. Our hosts will interview local activists about their work, advocacy initiatives, and ways to become involved. We’ll be lifting up small community groups run by unpaid volunteers and larger non-profit advocacy organizations. Exploring the role of women in leadership, the possibility of collaboration between issue groups, and how reproductive rights fits into a larger framework, Open Access explores activism and advocacy in our community—what it looks like for different people and for different fights for justice and equality.
It has been said that abortion should be safe, legal and rare. However, it shouldn’t be rare because a woman doesn’t have the means to pay for it. It is our responsibility to help women in need.
I would hope in this age of abundance that no woman would be refused any form of healthcare because she can’t afford it.
