If you are seeking information on abortion, be advised that as of June 24, 2022, providing abortion is now considered illegal in Wisconsin because of a law still in place from 1849. Lawsuits may change the situation in the future. The current law criminalizes the provider of abortion services but has protections from criminalizing the pregnant person seeking abortion. Clinical abortion services in Wisconsin are on hold because of this.
All clinics in Wisconsin are not currently scheduling appointments for or performing abortions. You can contact clinics in the more abortion-supportive neighboring states of Minnesota or Illinois, where abortion is still legal and available.
If you have decided to terminate a pregnancy and cannot afford to pay the full cost of a safe, legal abortion, call a clinic and make an appointment. Let them know that you need financial assistance. Don’t delay. Abortion costs go up very quickly after the first trimester. Ask the clinic you are using if they have access to financial resources that may help you.
WMF is partnering with the below organizations to ensure Wisconsin residents needing abortions have access to information, support, and financial assistance. With the support of generous donors, WMF continues to pay the costs of abortion care and practical support for those obtaining services.
