The Network has also received many requests from women who received
care from Dr. Tiller and from activists in the reproductive rights and
justice community to set up a Fund in Dr. Tiller’s name to help women
seeking abortion care. We have established the George Tiller Memorial
Abortion Fund that will help women in the second trimester with
assistance paying for abortion care, as well as paying for travel and
lodging enroute to providers. To donate to the Fund in Dr. Tiller’s
name, please send contributions to:
