Reproductive Access For All Nevadans.
Silver State Hope Fund
Silver State Hope Fund was started after our founder chose to have an abortion for fetal anomalies. Her insurance company refused to pay the termination costs. She had previously had an abortion while in an abusive relationship. Both times, knowing how hard it was to scrape together the money for the procedure, she wondered how others found the money to pay for their abortions. It is not easy. After the loss of a much wanted and planned pregnancy in April 2013, she decided to help others. SSHF was born out of the loss of a pregnancy; however, the Fund is dedicated to helping women in any circumstance. No one should be forced to carry a pregnancy she does not want to carry. SSHF believes no one, including the government, has the right to demand women give up personal autonomy and her 4th Amendment right to privacy simply because she is pregnant. No one in the United States of America should be forced to endure a pregnancy which could potentially kill her. Anytime you put your life at risk, it should be your CHOICE. Pregnancy and childbirth kill about 800 American women a year and hundreds of thousands worldwide. Legal abortions, by comparison, are infinitely safer for a woman to undergo. Pregnant women are being treated as second class citizens in many parts of the country, couples who are "parents of the unborn" are losing their parental rights to make decisions for their "children", especially the decision not to have these "children". The Silver State Hope Fund does not believe this is the American Way. We are here to help women in need, without judgment or prejudice. If the government, and the insurance we pay for, will not help us - then we must help each other. 1 in 3 American women will have an abortion before she is 45 years old. You are not alone.
Our experience means we know what you are looking for in an abortion provider. We are here to help.
