The Cobalt Community

Cobalt’s strength lies in the voices of our community members throughout the state. These voices help us to create and advocate for policies and legislation that are most needed to ensure reproductive health access in Colorado. We rely on our donors to help support our work which includes the Cobalt Abortion Fund. Our partnerships reflect the diversity of our community and are the backbone of our work. Our volunteers help us to spread our message and advocate for candidates and policies that support and enhance reproductive health access.

Messaging Guidance

We encourage you to think about the harm that comes from the wording of these.

🚫 | Coat hangers and “back alley abortions”: We don’t need to reference imagery from the past when abortion was unsafe. Thanks to advancements in medical science and the internet, we have abortion pills (that are super safe and can be mailed!). Coat hanger images and “back alley abortions” imply that there are no longer safe abortion options and perpetuates abortion stigma.

🚫 | Sharia Law: These barriers to abortion access are created by white supremacist, Christian fundamentalists; therefore, these comparisons are inaccurate, racist, and anti-Muslim.

🚫 | The Handmaid’s Tale: This comparison centers fictional, rich, white folks and ignores the reality that many BIPOC communities have long been living in a world where their reproductive health decisions and outcomes have been wrongfully controlled, restricted and criminalized.

🚫 | Underground railroad: Underground railroad is not an appropriate term to use in relationship to this work. It’s culturally appropriative and disrespectful to the legacy of escape from chattel slavery. Abortion funds and practical support organizations already exist to help people navigate getting abortion care.

🚫 | Slavery: We shouldn’t have to tell you or anyone not to do this.

“If I didn't get the financial assistance, it would be so much burden for me financially. Only if it was legal on my state, I wouldn't have to go through all the travels and inconveniences. But I am very thankful that I got financial assistance which made my process safe and successful.”
Greer Larson
“We were so excited for this wanted pregnancy and were caught completely off guard. We live in a state where abortion is illegal with very few exceptions. We took as much time as we could to discuss if we wanted to continue the pregnancy but realized we were not going to win - our daughter was not going to make it to term or have the life we hoped for her. We made very last minute hotel reservations and flight reservations and panicked childcare arrangements for our other children and went as quickly as we could to a state where abortion is legal. Without Cobalt, we would not have been able to afford the healthcare I needed. We said goodbye to our daughter with love and care and dignity due to the help from Cobalt.”

“ I was introduced to the Cobalt Family who treated me with the utmost respect and kindness in my utmost time of need. ..The support I received from every person I encountered at Cobalt, from financial assistance with any costs ensued with the procedure to the mental and emotional support I felt in my most desperate time of need, Cobalt was there for me. I will never forget how much they helped me. Thank you so much for everything you do. I am so grateful.”

“I found a good clinic to help me with my situation and they referred me to Cobalt. If it wasn’t for cobalt, I would’ve been bed bound with no income to feed my kids or pay the bills or car note. The lady that assisted me only asked me for my name, appt time and name of the Drs office for my appt. She then set up everything else for me! It felt like this was too good to be true! I kept asking myself “what’s the catch?!” I didn’t have to struggle spending all of my money for this procedure.”

“I found Cobalt's information posted on [the clinic's] website , I contacted them. The lady on the phone was the sweetest person and very helpful. They funded my whole trip including the procedure. I was very thankful for that because my funds were running low and I couldn’t afford the trip, room and procedure cost. They handled everything for me and kept in contact with me throughout the 2 weeks until my appointment date...I can’t thank them enough for everything they’ve done for me.”

“When I found out I was pregnant I was afraid because in the state that I live in abortion is banned as early as 6 weeks. When I found out, it was too late to get help. I had to search out of state. Luckily I found Cobalt. They were straight forward and provided the help that I needed. Not only did they help me financially but they also took the work of finding hotel and transportation.”

“I am forever grateful for having found this organization. I honestly don’t know what I would have done without the assistance. Being that I had to travel from another state, affording the cost of airfare, hotel and the procedure was impossible for me.”
