Women’s Medical Fund
Types of Support
- Financial Assistance
Women’s Medical Fund may be able to support you if you are a Wisconsin resident who cannot pay the full cost of an abortion.
If you are going to a Wisconsin clinic and have a counseling appointment you must wait at least 24 hours to have an abortion. That is state law. You can ask the clinic for assistance in paying for the counseling appointment. After you have your counseling appointment if you decide to get an abortion, the clinic will make an appointment for the abortion. If you are unable to pay the full cost of the abortion, ask the clinic if they can refer you to financial resources that may be able to pay the partial cost of your abortion. They will determine whether to refer you to WMF.
If you are from Wisconsin but going to a clinic outside the state, we may be able to support you in paying. Ask the clinic you are using if they accept funding from Women’s Medical Fund or can suggest other financial resources. They will determine whether to refer you to WMF.
About Women’s Medical Fund
The Women’s Medical Fund, Inc. is a volunteer non-profit organization established in 1976 to support Wisconsin residents who cannot afford the entire cost of an abortion. WMF supports Wisconsin residents’ ability to exercise reproductive choice. Wisconsin has only 3 abortion clinics & some of the most restrictive abortion laws in the nation. Most of those WMF supports receive their health care through state Medicaid. However, Medicaid in Wisconsin will only rarely pay for abortion services.
The right to abortion care is meaningless without access to abortion services.
Women’s Medical Fund's Community
Since 1976 WMF has been Wisconsin’s only continuously operating volunteer independent abortion fund serving residents throughout Wisconsin. WMF works collaboratively with other abortion funds in Wisconsin and nationally to support state residents by paying the cost of abortion.
