Meet Lucile*. She lives in Florida with her three kids. When she found out she was pregnant, she knew she wanted an abortion. But the travel costs seemed insurmountable to meet in time.
*Her name has been changed to respect her privacy.

Because of Florida’s abortion restrictions, Lucile needed to travel to the nearest available abortion appointment – all the way up in New York.

Her appointment would take place over two days, which meant she needed a hotel and transportation to and from the airport, her hotel, and her appointment. Plus Lucile’s provider required that she have someone escort her home after the procedure.

The challenges Lucile faced are increasingly common with the rise in abortion restrictions. Without enough money and support, many people can’t get to the abortion they need.

Planning
We stepped in to cover her travel costs. With the help of trusted, on-the-ground partners, The Brigid Alliance team tapped into a locally based network of volunteers, which found someone to accompany Lucile to and from her appointment. We planned all of the logistics so Lucile could focus on herself and her family.
Image Conclusion
After the procedure, Lucile sent a message:
“ I just want to say with all the love and sincerity in my heart, THANK YOU! None of this could have been done without the help of you and your team.”
We are able to help hundreds of clients like Lucile each month because of our team’s local knowledge, logistical expertise and, of course, funding from our donors and supporters.
