We've got you covered. No Referral Needed.  

People of ALL genders can come to us with ANY insurance without a referral! For those without insurance, we have a programs that offer free services to qualifying clients!

Thank you for Celebrating Choice! 

We were very fortunate to have elected officials join us at our Celebrate Choice events. Senator Richard Pan's office honored the health center with an official CA Senate Resolution and certificates for our Sacramento clinic escort volunteers. Senator Toni Atkins and Sacramento City Council Member Eric Guerra also joined us at the Sacramento event. In Chico, Council Member Ann Schwab joined us and spoke. With your help, our benefits raised over $10,000! Your dollars matter now more than ever, as we fight to protect abortion access and provide reproductive healthcare in our state and communities.

Abortion Access Hackathon in San Francisco

You might remember All Access: Sacramento, which was the first ever Abortion Access Hackathon! Women's Health Specialists is partnering with a group of tech experts who double as independent abortion rights activists in San Francisco for another Abortion Access Hackathon--this time a 3 day event, March 3 - 5th, with over 300 participants! The event is already booked, but check out this article in Teen Vogue about the hackathon and look out for its mention in other upcoming national publications!
