About Abortion Fund of Ohio & Abortion Funds
Abortion Fund of Ohio (formerly known as Women Have Options (WHO/O)) is Ohio’s statewide abortion fund. Founded in 1992, we believe that everyone should be able to make their own reproductive decisions—and we work to make that a reality in Ohio. We're a founding member of the National Network of Abortion Funds, which includes more than 100 abortion funds around the United States and overseas. We provide financial assistance and practical support (transportation, housing, and more) to help patients afford contraception, emergency contraception, and abortion services. In our 30 years of operation, Abortion Fund of Ohio has helped thousands pay for abortion care. You can support our work with a one-time or monthly donation.
