The Abortion Fund for Social Justice MARIA (Women, Abortion, Reproduction, Information and Accompaniment) arises on May 28, 2009, from the legalization of abortion through week 12 in Mexico City.
They give financial, emotional and logistical support to women who do not have enough resources to access the legal abortion services available in Mexico City.

At the national level, they work in liaison with the National Alliance for the Right to Decide-ANDAR , the SS-DF and other private services in Mexico City.
Their mission is to contribute to the construction of a social context that recognizes and supports the right of women to decide on their bodies, facilitating effective access to safe abortion through information, economic support and accompaniment to empower.
