Women Have Options has been contacted about a patient from Ohio who has to have an emergency abortion TODAY. The problem is, this patient is over 20 weeks along in her pregnancy and post 20-week abortions are now illegal in Ohio.
When abortions are needed later in pregnancy, it’s often in very complex circumstances — the kind of situations where a patient and her doctor need every medical option available. But instead, she has had to travel to a clinic on the West coast TODAY to obtain the medical care she so desperately needs.
Her procedure is complicated and is going to cost her $10,000, plus travel expenses. Due to Ohio laws, she cannot get her medical care in-state. To add to the barriers, she's a public employee, and the state bans public insurance from covering this necessary health care and she's run out of time and other funding opportunities. She's drained her savings and got as many credit extensions as she possibly can, but is still $7,000 short.
We are not going to let her go without care, but we need help.
Please share and give as you can.
