we know that there is more to getting an abortion than money.
For many people, getting other support - like reliable transportation and safe lodging, can be just as difficult as coming up with the funds for an abortion. We may be able to assist you with these needs. Magnolia Fund offers funding or volunteer support for:
- Transportation (rides to the clinic, taxi fare, greyhound bus tickets, etc.)
- Housing (a place to stay if your abortion is more than one appointment over two days)
- Meals (if you need to pay for extra meals during your travel time)
- Aftercare prescriptions
- Emergency contraception (Plan B) or birth control
If you need practical support, please leave a message on our free, confidential hotline at 706-623-7526. You can also ask about practical support funding when discussing financial support with our case manager. Include the following information:
- Your name
- The number where we can call you back
- What type of practical support you need
If it is okay for us to to identify ourselves when we return your call (If you do not tell us that it is safe to identify ourselves, we will leave the following message: “Hi, I’m returning the message you left on our voicemail, please call me back at 706-623-7526 and tell me when it’s a good time to try you again.”)
- If it is okay for us to text message you
- The date of your appointment
- The name of the clinic.
Callers who do not leave a message will not have their phone call returned. We need your contact information to return your call! As we are an all-volunteer organization, it may take some time for us to respond. One of our trained case managers will call you back within 24-48 hours.
If you have not already set up an appointment, please do that before you call our hotline. Knowing the date and location of your appointment will make the process much easier. You may need to call several clinics to find the best price. Some clinics may not be able to help you if you are further along in your pregnancy.
