The North Dakota WIN Fund, established in January of 1999, believes restrictions on abortion funding and abortion access are discriminatory because they especially burden women in need: low-income women, young women, women of color and rural women of North Dakota, South Dakota and Minnesota, and ND WIN fund is dedicated to fighting the cruel restrictions placed on women seeking abortion care in their area. The primary purpose of the fund is to serve as a safety net for women who would not otherwise be able to obtain an abortion.
North Dakota and South Dakota have some of the most restrictive laws in the nation on abortion and abortion access. Current laws include required waiting periods, state mandated information that includes inflammatory and inaccurate statements, restrictions on abortion methods, and unnecessary requirements for doctors providing abortion. These conservative state legislatures continue to introduce and largely support additional onerous restrictions. The ND WIN Fund initiates advocacy efforts to inform, educate and activate the public when these legislative threats occur.
The Hyde Amendment prevents federal funds from being used for abortion services. As Medicaid is a jointly funded federal-state health insurance program, states have to choose to provide state funds for Medicaid abortion coverage. North Dakota and South Dakota do not allocate funding for Medicaid abortion coverage. Additionally, North Dakota has a restriction on private health insurance plans covering abortion services. This extensive lack of insurance coverage creates a significant financial barrier to abortion services for low-income women in North Dakota and South Dakota.
The ND WIN Fund was founded on the principle that women on North Dakota and South Dakota Medicaid should have a safety net when accessing abortion. The financial assistance grants provided by the ND WIN Fund help reduce the impact of the lack of insurance coverage in these states.
Please help us fight these ridiculous laws and support the ND WIN Fund.
