Texas Equal Access Fund
The Texas Equal Access Fund is a 501c3 nonprofit that provides financial assistance to low-income people who cannot afford the cost of abortion. Founded in 2005, the TEA Fund serves the D/FW metroplex area as well as West Texas, the Panhandle, and Waco, in addition to western Louisiana. The TEA Fund is a member of the National Network of Abortion Funds.
We believe that access to the full range of reproductive rights is necessary for people to experience equality in society and enjoy other basic rights such as self-determination, education, economic opportunity, and health. As abortion is a fundamental feature of health care, we oppose all efforts to restrict abortion and are committed to fighting for abortion access for all people. Restrictions on abortion access and funding infringe on people’s ability to control their reproductive destinies and are discriminatory because they especially burden poor people, young people, people of color, and rural people. It is the responsibility of government to fund abortions for people in need. In the absence of government funding, we believe it is our duty to act now to support people who want abortions and cannot afford them.
