AmeriCorps Members Illegally Provided Abortion Support

April 28, 2016

(U.S. News & World Report) – Between 2013 and 2015, the National Association of Community Health Centers, which operates part of AmeriCorps’ health branch and receives federal funding, allowed members of the youth job-training program to provide these services, known as “doula care,” to women who were having abortions in three clinics with which it contracts in New York City. The report did not specify how many women obtained an abortion as a result of AmeriCorps service members getting involved.
