SIGN THE PETITION
"Crowdfunding for Everyone”
Except those who need abortion care of course! Recently, GoFundMe made a statement saying that they would no longer allow petitions for essential, legal, medical care, such as abortion. This decision flies in the face of current science, legal wisdom, and common sense, and is just bad business.
GoFundMe stated that abortion is, “subject matter that GoFundMe would rather not be associated with.” Needing help funding a medical procedure is nothing to be ashamed of. Denying essential medical care to those in need is a human rights violation, and actually is something to be ashamed of. Forcing a person to essentially become a living organ donor because they can not afford medicine deemed essential by the World Health Organization, or a necessary, safe, legal, medical procedure is indeed something to be ashamed of.
We call on GoFundMe to reconsider, and publicly reverse their decision to deny people venue to fund medical care.
