Report details circumstances of women who apply for abortion-funding assistance

This week, the Third Wave Foundation (TWF), an activist organization that works with young women and transgender youth, released a report (PDF) that illustrates a revealing picture of the type of woman that seeks out funding for an abortion she cannot afford. Each year TWF pledges funding amounts through its Emergency Abortion Fund to low-income women — particularly minors, minorities and illegal immigrants — seeking abortions. The report is based on data derived from the 505 people TWF gave funding to in 2010.
