Huge disappointment, it's a publicity stunt. Only has relevant results if you're in New York(maybe?). One option literally recommended I travel 1000 miles to New York. It is missing most key local resources including things like the fire department's non-emergency number. It indicates zero Reproductive Health Care resources in my area (we have 3 planned Parenthoods!) Found this in a 2021 Time's magazine top 100 article in a doctor's office. This was clearly a publicity stunt that sadly worked.

Great one stop resource but it's a bit lacking on the local level. I would love to see a feature added where we can submit info to local resources we know of. I have so many in my area that aren't listed currently but are a tremendous help to the community.

Good idea but there is room for improvement. The "local" resources are almost all ~160mi away. Is there a way for us phone users to contribute to the database, so people have updated resources on hand when a crisis strikes? Thank you
