About us

Who We Are

  • The Baltimore Abortion Fund (BAF) is a mutual aid, grassroots, nonprofit organization that provides financial assistance and practical support to people who live in or travel to Maryland for abortion care.
  • We are part of the National Network of Abortion Funds, which consists of 70+ independently operated funds across the country.
  • We use an intersectional reproductive justice lens to dismantle white supremacy and remove systemic barriers people face when accessing abortion care. 

What We Do

  • BAF operates a confidential helpline (443-297-9893) where our case managers make financial commitments to help callers pay for their procedures, as well as provide information on how to access abortion care.
  • BAF provides financial commitments to cover a portion of the caller’s abortion care. Our case managers refer callers to area health clinics that provide reproductive health services.
  • BAF provides practical support like transportation, accommodations, and translation services, to remove barriers to abortion care.
  • BAF actively works to reduce abortion stigma within Maryland and participates in the broader conversations in shaping local and state-wide policy affecting our callers.  

Why Abortion Funds Are Important

  • Abortion funds ensure people have the resources they need to make decisions that are best for them and their family. 
  • Abortion Funds are independent non-profits. Abortion Funds will partner with any National Abortion Federation provider, often times these are independent abortion clinics. Independent abortion clinics provide care to 3 out of 5 people in the US who have an abortion.
  • Removing financial barriers is critical to protecting access to abortion care.
