The Supreme Court’s decision to overturn nearly 50 years of precedent protecting a person’s right to abortion marks a seismic shift for reproductive rights across the country.

For now, abortion is still legal in Florida, but the future remains less clear.

Here are five resources you should know about if you’re seeking abortion.

Tampa Bay Abortion Fund

The Tampa Bay Abortion Fund is a nonprofit organization that works to eliminate financial and logistical barriers for people who choose to have an abortion. The organization is run by a network of volunteers, and provides resources that include money to pay for procedures or pills, rides to and from appointments, child care, and more.

Repro Legal Helpline

With laws changing, and some states moving to criminalize abortion, the Repro Legal Helpline provides a break down of abortion rights depending on location, age and term of pregnancy. The helpline, run by If/When/How, an organization of attorneys who fight for reproductive freedom, is also affiliated with the Repro Legal Defense Fund. The defense fund covers bail and the cost of defense for people who are “investigated, arrested, or prosecuted for self-managed abortion.”
