In addition to being the professional association of abortion providers, NAF also provides direct service to patients who need help accessing abortion care. We run a toll-free, multi-lingual Hotline for abortion referrals and financial assistance in the U.S. and Canada. We provide callers with accurate information, confidential consultation, options counseling, and referrals to providers of quality abortion care. We also provide case management services and limited financial assistance to help people afford the cost of their care and travel-related expenses. The Hotline is free and offers services to everyone, regardless of their individual situation.
What it Really Costs to Get an Abortion
No one plans to have an abortion until they need one
and when they do, it's unlikely they have money set aside for the procedure, much less the additional costs that they will need to cover in order to obtain care. The National Abortion Federation runs the largest national, toll-free Hotline to help people find quality abortion providers and help them raise the funds to pay for their care and the associated costs:
Every dollar donated to our patient assistance funds goes directly to helping patients access the abortion care they need. These funds help cover procedure costs, travel-related expenses, translation services, and other practical support needs of patients.
