As you can see from this mention we got in the @nytimes today, when you donate to the Gateway Women’s Access Fund you are helping someone avoid a crisis. You are giving someone some much needed last minute relief. Thanks to your generous support, we will continue to work towards a world where no one has to panic at the last minute to pay for their abortion. ❤️ • Link to article: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/07/09/us/abortion-access-inequality.html
THANK YOU to @liberaljane for donating 100% of the profits from this print to GWAF. You’re incredible! Check out the link in their bio if you want to pre-order a print. Orders will be accepted through June 30. 💗 • • •Repost @liberaljane with @get_repost ・・・ [Scroll down if you wanna support abortion! 💸] ❤️ Safe abortions saves lives. ❤️ Before 1973, people died from illegal abortions. If Roe was overturned today, the reality is that those with the means necessary will be able to travel ✈️ & access abortion care. Those not as fortunate will be forced to seek solutions outside the healthcare system 🧬 that may not be safe & may face criminalization. ⛓ • • ✨ We're not there yet: abortion is still legal in the U.S. Access to abortion, on the other hand, has become extremely restricted & limited in many parts of the country. ✨ • • ✨ If you want to see this in action, look no further than Missouri. Missouri recently passed an 8 week ban & last month, the Department of Health tried to shut down the last clinic in the state by refusing to renew its license. The State now has until 6/21 to decide if the clinic can remain open. ▪️ • • ▫️94% of Missouri women of reproductive age live in a county without a clinic. Restrictions like the 72 hour waiting period means people seeking care in MO often have to travel long distances, & make multiple trips to the clinic - all of which makes accessing care more expensive. ◾️ • • 🛑 Stop here to support! I’m ordering a limited batch of prints to raise money for @gwafund, an abortion fund in Missouri that is helping people access the care they need. 💰 • • 💰 100% of the profits will go to the Gateway Women’s Access Fund. Check out the link in my bio for pre-orders. Pre-orders will only be available until 6/30/19, & orders will ship in early July after our union printer starts production. International orders welcome. ✨ • • ✨Image caption adapted from a memorial inscribed with "In memory of the courageous women who died from illegal, unsafe abortions because they had no choice."
While July 4 might be the officially recognized day of American independence, not all of our fellow Americans gained freedom in 1776. Juneteenth marks the anniversary of the day in 1865 that slaves were emancipated in the USA. It’s now 2019, and we still have work to do- the simple fact remains that until we are all free, none of us are ever truly free. Happy Juneteenth, everyone!

We have been utterly blown away by both the financial AND emotional support we have received these last few weeks. The world we are striving to create is one where the only factor in a person’s choice to have an abortion is whether or not they want one. The fight for bodily autonomy is far from over. We intend to keep doing what we have always done, which is to make sure that every single Missourian can access abortion if they need one. Thank you for helping us do this work, and for being on the side of Missourians who need help. Thank you for helping them even when some of their own elected representatives are trying to hurt them. Thank you for being on the side of reproductive justice. . . . #stopthebans #reproductivejustice #abortionishealthcare #abortionfunds
BREAKING: The state is refusing to renew the abortion license at Planned Parenthood in St. Louis over an inappropriate and suspicious request to interrogate doctors without explanation. This has nothing to do with health and safety and everything to do with the political football that is banning abortion. Your support and donations are more crucial today than ever before. Please go to the link in our bio to donate, so that we can continue ensuring Missourians have access to safe abortion.
Did you know that more than 65% of our clients have travelled out of state to receive abortion care? We have been doing the work to make sure Missourians can access abortion, regardless of where they have to travel, for years- and we aren’t about to stop now. As a member of the National Network of Abortion Funds, we have the knowledge and connections to continue this work no matter what the state of Missouri throws at us. So if you or someone you love needs an abortion, please know- we’ve got your back. We aren’t going anywhere . . . . #abortionfunds #abortionishealthcare #abortionrights
BREAKING NEWS: Governor Parsons just signed the 8 week abortion ban. However, the law has not gone into effect and ✨abortion is still legal in Missouri✨ Please spread the word- misinformation, no matter how well intentioned, is a huge barrier to abortion access . . . . Gateway Women’s Access Fund has been knocking down barriers to care for years, and we will continue to ensure that Missourians can access safe and legal abortion, no matter what. If you would like to support our work you can donate to the fund through the link in our bio. #stopthebans #abortionishealthcare
🚨 T A K E A C T I O N 🚨 GWAF will have a presence at the downtown St. Louis rally in Luther Ely Smith Square, but rallies are being held EVERYWHERE- so please join in standing up for abortion access in your community!
Happy birthday to Michael Brown Jr, who should have turned 23 today. We will continue to say his name and keep his memory alive while fighting against all forms of oppression. #mikebrownforever #intersectionalfeminism #blacklivesmatter
KANSAS CITY! We see you showing up for abortion access! 💪❤️🥰 St. Louis, you’re up next- Tuesday at noon, downtown in Luther Ely Smith Park. Rally to #stopthebans and let the world know that #abortionishealthcare
🗣🗣🗣 THIS ALL DAY🗣🗣🗣 It is very easy to begin “othering” in this fight. Promoting the idea that it’s only a bunch of old white male republicans trying to control our bodies is counterproductive and factually incorrect. If your feminism isn’t intersectional, it is bullshit.
This has been planned for a while now, but the timing couldn’t be more perfect. If you are in St. Louis and want to show up to support GWAF, please join us at the Heavy Anchor tonight. Music at 8, lady arm wrestlers at 9, ALL PROCEEDS WILL FUND MISSOURI ABORTION! ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜
We have heard a lot of confusion from folks who are seeking abortion care and want to be CRYSTAL CLEAR- you can still get an abortion in Missouri. It is LEGAL, and it will stay that way if we have anything to say about it. So if you or someone you know has an appointment, please don’t worry! You can still get a safe and legal abortion in Missouri. Spread the word while you keep up the fight. ❤️
📍Link in bio to call📍WE HAVE MADE IT AS EASY AS POSSIBLE FOR YOU TO CALL YOUR REPRESENTATIVES! This abhorrent bill has *no exception for rape or incest*.

Since 2016 we have funded abortion procedures for Missourians from every senate district in the state. As it stands today, over 60% of the abortions we have funded were for folks who had been forced to cross state lines. The need will only increase, so your donations and support are crucial . . . Missouri, we aren’t going anywhere. Our all-volunteer organization is deeply committed to helping Missourians who need abortion access- and that’s not ever going to change . . . #stopthebans #moleg #abortionfunds #abortionishealthcare #prochoice
