If you live in Grand Junction, Mesa County or anywhere on the western slope, need an abortion and are having a hard time finding and/or affording one, your best resource and first stop should be Cobalt Advocates.
Cobalt believes nothing should come between you and your reproductive decisions, no matter who you are or where you live. Cobalt operates the Cobalt Abortion Fund, a dedicated abortion fund that helps people cover the cost of an abortion. They also help with the costs and logistics and other needs people often have when getting an abortion, like transportation and lodging. The Cobalt Abortion fund is 100% donor-funded, and is the only independent fund of its kind in Colorado. Cobalt’s goal is to make sure no one has to endure a a financial or logistic burden when it comes to abortion.
Everyone has the right to obtain an abortion in Colorado
In April, 2022, Colorado Gov. Jared Polis (D) signed legislation (H 1279) that codifies reproductive rights. The law affirms the right of every individual to continue or end a pregnancy and to use or refuse contraception, and the law prohibits the state from restricting or interfering with such access. The law went into effect upon signing in April.
Cobalt helps with contraception information, too
Cobalt also wants you to know your rights and have full information when it comes to contraception. They have a full rundown on their website of the different types of contraception, exactly what each one consists of, how they work to prevent pregnancy and how to get them. There’s also a guide to help find the pharmacies closest to you that sell contraception.
There are loads of resources on their site for help with all your reproductive health care needs. Visit them at the link located in the first paragraph at the top of this article or click on this link to the Cobalt Abortion Fund.
Cobalt has resources for providers as well as patients, and they offer a place to tell your own story, too, because people’s stories are important.
The Cobalt Abortion Fund is a welcoming resource to all, and does not discriminate based on age, religion, marital status, physical ability, gender expression or identity, sexual orientation, race, or ethnicity.
