Abortion Access

Essential Access Health (Essential Access) believes that access to comprehensive and patient-centered sexual and reproductive health care, including abortion, is essential for individual, family, and community economic security and health and well-being. With the United States Supreme Court’s devastating decision overturning Roe vs. Wade, the call to action to reduce barriers to abortion care when and wherever possible is urgent and necessary. The right to bodily autonomy is fundamental, and the ability to make personal decisions about our health, families, and futures should not be determined by an individual’s zip code, age, or income.

Essential Access increases pathways to receiving time-sensitive and potentially life-changing – and saving – abortion care and medically-accurate information through training, technical assistance, and fund distribution.

Our Medication Access Program helps integrate medication abortion in diverse health settings across the country.

In 2022, Los Angeles County designated Essential Access as the Program Administrator for the Los Angeles County Abortion Access Safe Haven Pilot Program. The Request for Proposals (RFP) has been released. Applications are due February 20, 2023. 

The California Department of Health Access and Information also has funding opportunities available.
