How common is abortion?
Abortion is common. One in four women in the US has an abortion by the age of 45. People have abortions for many reasons, including their health, their finances, their age, their career goals, their family situation, pregnancy complications, and other reasons. Your own reason is the right reason.
Where can I get an abortion?
Please see our Abortion Providers page to locate the nearest provider to you. As this site is intended for Wyoming and eastern Idaho residents, we list abortion providers in Wyoming, Colorado, Montana, and Utah that are most relevant to Wyoming residents. In Wyoming, telehealth medication abortion is available so you may not have to leave your home.
What if I cannot afford an abortion?
CONTACT US! 307-438-9272 Chelsea’s Fund will help you fund your abortion. In addition to our fund, we may help you access other funding sources and suggest additional ways to pay for your abortion. Please see our Financial Assistance page for more information.
Must I be a US citizen to receive assistance?
No. We do not ask about your country of citizenship or immigration status. Anyone who lives in Wyoming or eastern Idaho or accessing a Wyoming provider is eligible for financial assistance.
Can I receive funds if I don’t live in Wyoming?
Yes — if you are accessing abortion services in Wyoming. If you live elsewhere, please contact the National Network of Abortion Funds for funding suggestions.
Where does Chelsea’s Fund get its funding?
Chelsea’s Fund is funded by generous private donors who believe everyone has a right to personal reproductive decisions and no one should be denied an abortion due to financial barriers.
Where can I get affordable birth control?
Ask the clinic where/if you are getting an abortion. They may be able to provide you an IUD or other long-acting reversible contraceptive at the same time. If interested, LET US KNOW and we may be able to help with that cost too.
If you have health insurance, ask your insurer about coverage. All Affordable Care Act (a.k.a. Obamacare) compliant plans must cover contraceptive methods and counseling. These plans must cover birth control services without charging a co-payment or co-insurance when they’re provided by an in-network provider. This is true even if you haven’t met your deductible. See HealthCare.gov for more info.
If you don’t have insurance, find your nearest Wyoming Title X clinic. These clinics provide affordable birth control options on a sliding scale based on your income. They will not deny anyone services because they are unable to pay. Teenagers do not need parental permission to receive birth control services.
Can I purchase abortion pills online?
YES! See Justthepill.com. Additionally, information on self-managed care is available at plancpills.org. Chelsea’s Fund provides this link for informational purposes only. We expressly are NOT providing any medical or legal advice about the appropriateness of self-managed abortion for you. Chelsea’s Fund currently does not have a funding relationship with AidAccess.org ,which also provides medication abortion online, and otherwise only provides financial assistance for services provided through clinics, including Justthepill.com.
