When you make a gift to The CAIR Project, you're not only directly helping a woman access necessary medical care, you're also giving her back the opportunity to pursue her hopes and dreams. You're ensuring that no one is forced to carry a pregnancy to term because they couldn't come up with the bus fare to a distant clinic, or because she had the wrong insurance or was short $100. You're helping a woman change her life.
A person's ability to decide when and whether to have a child should never depend on income.
The CAIR Project depends on donations to serve the women who call our hotline. Every contribution counts. Donate today to help make choice a reality.
Become a practical support volunteer
Second trimester abortion care is increasingly difficult to access across the US. People now travel from states like California, Hawaii, Idaho, and Alaska to the Seattle area to obtain an abortion. These trips are expensive, and many women are unable to afford hotel rooms and cabs once they arrive in Seattle.
