NM Abortion Info by ProgressNow New Mexico
ProgressNow New Mexico has created a database of fake clinics that pose as healthcare facilities providing reproductive health services. These are centers that advertise false information about abortion services and DO NOT perform abortions.
Powered by the team at iNeedAnA.com, this national database tells you if a clinic is real, or a Crisis Pregnancy Center (CPC). In many states, there are more crisis pregnancy centers than abortion clinics. They will frequently buy Google ads so that they appear above actual abortion clinics when you’re searching.
As mentioned in the payment section, insurance coverage for abortion care is limited, and often times, individuals must pay out-of-pocket for the care they need. There are organizations that offer financial assistance for provider care or associated needs. Those organizations are often listed as abortion funds. The funds listed below are regional and available to assist on a person-by-person basis and may not cover the entire cost. In general, individuals reaching out for assistance will need to fill out a form and have a confidential conversation to gauge needs.
Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice New Mexico (RCRC)
Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice New Mexico assists with associated costs of abortion care such as transportation, lodging and meals, but NOT abortion care.
Notes/Requirements for this fund:
The application process includes requests for additional information ONLY to see if you qualify for other types of funding.
National Network of Abortion Funds
The National Network of Abortion Funds (NNAF) offers an online directory of state-by-state funding information and resources.
NNAF also has a hotline that is completely free, anonymous, and offers services to everyone, regardless of individual situations for those that prefer and/or need a phone directory or lack accessibility to internet services. In addition to their abortion providers referral hotline, NNAF has hotlines which provide information on resources such as financial assistance as well-although, their information may vary for each state.

DIGITAL SECURITY AND SAFETY
As much as we want to hope, most websites we browse on the internet do not have the user’s best interest in mind regarding anonymity and privacy. In the day and age of advertising technology, most websites have tracking built into them. While this isn’t meant to instill fear, it’s still a reality many face today when it comes to searching online for abortion information.
Digital Defense Fund
Digital Defense Fund (DDF) provides digital security and technology support to organizations and individuals working in the abortion access movement. This website is organized into different security-related threats and a list of digital security tips.
