Abortion access is a Jewish value. And as Jews, we have an obligation to make sure everyone can get the care they need. Reform Judaism's The Religious Action Center offers many resources on Reform Judaism's commitment to reproductive justice, including access to safe abortion care. In light of the recent Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v Wade, we need to return to our core Jewish values of protecting life.

The Carolina Abortion Fund (CAF) operates a confidential helpline that provides financial, practical, and emotional support to callers in North and South Carolina trying to access abortion care. CAF serves all of their callers regardless of gender identity, race, age, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, religion, ability, place of origin, citizenship, and all other physical or social defining factors. 

CAF is a pro-abortion and pro-choice organization that works in partnership with reproductive justice organizations locally, regionally, and nationally to support families access to parenting, abortion, and adoption as well as valid reproductive options.

CAF works directly with clinics to provide grants that fill the gap between what patients can afford and the full cost of the procedure. CAF is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that is supported by foundations and individuals dedicated to reproductive freedom. Individual donations are directed entirely to funding their helpline and serve callers— dollar for dollar, your gift supports patients!

National Council of Jewish Women's Fund for Abortion Access  believes that Abortion Access is a Jewish value, plain and simple. Inspired by Jewish values, the National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW) is a grassroots organization of volunteers and advocates who turn progressive ideals into action. They put this value into action; connecting real people who need abortions with the money they need to access care.

NCJW created the Jewish Fund for Abortion Access in partnership with the National Abortion Federation (NAF), a national organization that represents, serves, and supports abortion providers in delivering patient-centered, evidence-based care.  he fund through NCJW will help with their emergency relief efforts in three ways:

  • Funding the largest hotline in the country.
  • Funding travel over state lines for those who need it.
  • Funding abortions at NAF approved clinics for those who need it. 

The National Council of Jewish Women is a 501 tax exempt organization. Founded in 1893, NCJW is self-described as the oldest Jewish women’s grassroots organization in the United States.
