The Abortion Fund of Arizona works to ensure abortion access for Arizonans because we view the right to abortion as a fundamental human right, essential for equality, health, and dignity. We help offset the cost of a safe and legal abortion for those who cannot afford one. Restrictions on abortion access and funding are discriminatory, and these restrictions especially burden low-income patients. We oppose all efforts to restrict abortion rights and are committed to fighting for access to abortion. We also seek to educate the public about abortion access in Arizona and connect all people in Arizona with the resources they need to obtain abortion care. Call 602-327-5166 or click below for more help options.
