Oregon Clothing Company Raising Money for South Dakota Abortion Clinic

South Dakota is among seven states with only one abortion provider

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — An Oregon clothing company has raised over $25,000 for South Dakota’s only abortion clinic.

Portland-based Wildfang’s fundraising is intended to help Sioux Falls Planned Parenthood pay doctors who travel to the state to perform abortions and to pay for legal battles.

South Dakota is among seven states with only one abortion provider.

CEO Emma McIlroy says they chose to fundraise for South Dakota first because of its 72-hour waiting period for an abortion, often requiring women to travel 300 miles.
