Welcome to Arkansas Abortion Support Network. We work to reduce barriers to abortion access in Arkansas through clinic escorting, abortion funding, and community outreach & education.
We provide abortion support services to Arkansans regardless of race, gender identity, religion, socioeconomic status, ability, incarceration, or citizenship status.
YOU’RE INVITED! Come laugh with us.
Join AASN on Tuesday, September 25 at 8:00 pm
It’s our biggest event of the year!
The Second Annual Stand Up for Access Comedy Show Fundraiser
Times feel dark. With the specter of an extreme conservative nominee to the Supreme Court and increasing hostility to abortion rights, we all need to laugh and we need your support. We are working for the best, but planning for the worst. We need your help to do both.
We have a lineup full of bright stars from the local comedy scene, sure to keep you laughing all night! We’re also going to raffle off another fabulous gift bag, overflowing with goodies, gift certificates, and swag from local businesses and artists.
Visit our FACEBOOK EVENT PAGE for full details.

ALERT! We need your help now, more than ever. The landscape of abortion access in Arkansas changed overnight. One day, people in need of abortion services had the options of going to Planned Parenthood in Little Rock or Fayetteville for medication abortion (up to 9 weeks), or going to Little Rock Family Planning Services for either a medication abortion or a procedural abortion. Today, the only option is procedural abortion at LRFPS. (https://www.nytimes.com/2018/05/29/us/politics/supreme-court-wont-hear-challenge-to-restrictive-arkansas-abortion-law.html.)
This means fewer options for people all over the state and more travel expenses for those who are able to make it to Little Rock or a clinic in a neighboring state. This means a heavier patient load for LRFPS and clinics in neighboring states. This means more people trying to scrape together money to pay for procedures that will have to be scheduled further out, likely increasing cost.
This means we need your help! Please contribute what you can. All donations are receive with love and deep appreciation, and are tax deductible. Recurring donations help us plan and keep us sustainable. Visit our donation page and help us keep abortion accessible for Arkansans.

URGENT NEED FOR HELP:
AASN has a new client who is a minor. She is an excellent student making As and Bs. She is very active in extracurricular activities and sings in the choir. She and her boyfriend made a mistake and got pregnant. She was terrified to tell her mom. By the time she was able to tell her mom, it was past the date when abortion is legal in Arkansas. Because of the horrible and restrictive laws in Arkansas, it is necessary for her and her mom to travel out of state for the termination. She really is a great kid and will be going to college in the fall on a scholarship. Please help her live this life full of potential. Her family has raised $2500.00 but they still need about $2700.00 more. Your generous donation will enable her promising future.
The AASN Shop is live! Check it out HERE.
There's so much exciting news!
