Change for the World – Planned Parenthood’s Fund for Choice

Across Pennsylvania, an increasing number of legislative barriers have been established to limit a woman’s access to safe and legal abortions.  It is not just the legal roadblocks that women are facing – it is having to make difficult financial decisions like choosing between having a safe and legal procedure or going hungry, dropping out of school, or even facing eviction.

Fund for Choice, a committee of Planned Parenthood Keystone, has been helping women in our community for over 30 years.  Fund For Choice, which exists entirely thought donations, is committed to helping women break down the roadblocks to receiving abortion care by providing critical financial assistance.
