What’s happening in Texas and what you can do to help right now

This is Urgent!

Supporters, allies, and friends –

Here’s the condensed version of what’s going on with the Texas abortion ban (SB 8) now in effect: nearly ALL abortions past six weeks are banned, and anyone “aiding or abetting” someone getting an abortion can be SUED for a minimum of $10,000 (which could include someone helping with financial or practical support). Under SB 8 there are no exceptions for rape or incest. This is the biggest setback to legal abortion since Roe v. Wade became law nearly 50 years ago, and the South needs your help more than ever to protect abortion access in our region.

Here are some actions you can take RIGHT NOW to protect abortion access for Southerners:

Donate to Support in Reproductive Justice in Alabama

The Yellowhammer Fund envisions a society in which reproductive decisions are made free from coercion, shame, or state interference, a society in which individuals and communities have autonomy in making healthy choices regarding their bodies and their futures.

As members of the National Network of Abortion Funds, we’ve funded abortion care and practical support for Alabamians since 2018.
