What is the Hoosier Abortion Fund?
Getting an abortion in Indiana is difficult – and thanks to our lawmakers, it’s not getting any easier. That’s why we started the first statewide community-based abortion fund in Indiana. We can help you pay for medical care, transportation, child care, and other expenses related to obtaining an abortion.
How does the Hoosier Abortion Fund work?
The first step is to contact a clinic to make an appointment. Then call us at 812-727-4423. When you contact the clinic to make an appointment, make sure to ask them about any additional financial assistance they may offer.
Due to limited funding capacity we are not able to provide assistance to everyone. We currently prioritize people who are at least 10 weeks pregnant, due to Indiana’s restricted access to abortion care after the first trimester. The funding line will remain open until we have run out of available funds, and then will reopen the following week.
Note: If you are a minor (not yet 18 years old) seeking abortion funding assistance, please call the main All-Options PRC line at 812-558-0089 and select Option 2.
The Hoosier Abortion Fund funding line is answered on Thursdays starting at 10am and our voicemail is updated regularly to reflect any changes. Due to the high volume of requests, the voicemail is only open on Thursdays and remains open until we have run through our weekly budget.
When you call us, be prepared to leave a message with the following details:
- your first name
- telephone number where we can reach you
- your appointment date
- how many weeks pregnant you are
- best times to reach you
- whether it is OK for us to leave you a message
- any phone safety concerns you have
How much does abortion cost?
Depending on the clinic and method, a first trimester abortion in Indiana typically costs between $400-$550. Due to Indiana’s restrictive abortion laws, abortion procedures done after the first trimester of pregnancy must be performed in a hospital or licensed surgical center. This unnecessarily increases the costs and often means that you must travel out of state.
- Abortion Care Network: network of independent abortion providers
- National Abortion Federation: the NAF website offers maps that allow you to highlight clinics in your area while the NAF Hotline referral line 1-877-257-0012 provides referrals to member clinics in the U.S. and Canada (no funding assistance on this line)
- Planned Parenthood (look for clinics that list ‘abortion services’ among the services they offer)
Want to know more about aspiration and medication abortion?
Abortion: Which Method Is Right For Me?: Provides information for people choosing between medication and aspiration abortion.
Additional financial assistance for appointments at non-Planned Parenthood clinics can be found by contacting the National Abortion Federation at 1-800-772-9100. The hotline is open weekdays 7a. – 11p ET and Sat – Sun 9a-9p. Due to lack of funding support across the country the line is often busy. You will need to continue to call until you reach someone. The best times to call are after 5pm and on the weekends.
Note: the National Abortion Federation does not offer financial assistance to people who are having abortions procedures at Planned Parenthood Health Centers. If you are seeking abortion care at Planned Parenthood Health Centers, ask the clinic representative if you can be screened for financial assistance. They will ask you a few questions to determine if you are eligible to receive clinic assistance.
