Bowl-a-Thon Group Touts Raising Funds for 14-Year-Old’s Abortion
Cybercast News Service ^ | May 7, 2012 | Elizabeth Harrington

Posted on 05/08/2012 10:04:01 AM PDT by Sopater

The National Network of Abortion Funds (NNAF), who last month raised over $400,000 for abortions through its Bowl-a-Thon, touted that it provided money for a 14-year-old’s abortion as part of the group's “real stories of abortion access.”

On its website in a post entitled, “Getting an abortion means getting a second chance,” NNAF highlights the story of Darcy, a 14-year-old who terminated her pregnancy with the help of the group’s “George Tiller Memorial Fund.”

“I'm pretty smart for 14, I think,” Darcy writes. “I love biology, especially the stuff on animals. I'm pretty sure I'm going to be a vet -- I definitely want to start my own practice so that I make enough money and when I have kids I can be home with them,” she said.

After finding out she was pregnant, the girl writes she did not want to tell her mother, “But in the state where I live, minors can't get an abortion without permission from a parent or a judge,” she said. “So I did end up telling her.”

Darcy said a clinic put her in touch with NNAF because the “abortion was going to cost more than our rent.”

“There’s no way that me and my mom could have come up with that much,” she said.

“Getting my abortion means I'm going to get a second chance. And I want to make it count.”

NNAF draws attention to Darcy as one of “the real stories of abortion access,” and how the group is fulfilling its mission “to make sure that all women and girls can get the abortions they seek.”

As CNSNews.com previously reported, NNAF sponsored its third annual “National Abortion Access Bowl-a-Thon” throughout the month of April, raising funds for “low-income and disadvantaged women who want an abortion and do not have enough money to pay for it.” As of Wednesday, the group has raised $468,318.

Darcy’s story is also featured in the organization’s spring 2010 newsletter that states she contacted the George Tiller Memorial Abortion Fund for help. “Y’all were just so nice,” the girl said in the newsletter. “I mean, you gave me like more than a thousand dollars. There’s no way that me and my mom could have come up with that much.”

The Tiller Fund raises money for abortions performed after 20 weeks in honor of the late-term abortionist, who was murdered in 2009.

Calls to the National Network of Abortion Funds were not returned.

Not to worry ~ she's talking about a "second chance" to get pregnant right away.

For all we know this chil' is a budding sociopathic killer.

Reading this is just too depressing. I wish I could understand God’s infinite plan just a little bit to understand how this occurs, see how it exactly plays out, and what judgement and justice will ultimately come from it.

And it’s this generation of kids that’ll be taking care of us in our old age. May as well start picking out an iceberg to float on before I go to the nursing home in a few years.

I still can't believe how much this question is met with anger when debating with the left about abortion.

Abortion; is THE sacrament of (liberal) feminist religion...much like (the racist) Margaret Sanger championed.

Darcy, you got pregnant at 14 and think you were pretty smart to get someone else to pay to destroy your child, because you want to be a vet?

Sorry. No way I would ever let you work on MY animal. You lack both common sense and basic, human, compassion.

I gues "smart" doesn't mean the same thing that it did when I was in school.

Are the bowling pins painted to look like fetuses? Some people make no sense to me at all.

Are there any pro-life bowling leagues?

And if her “boyfriend” is over 18,
everyone involved here is enabling child sexual abuse.

That question is only relevant when the mother UNILATERALLY decides to keep the kid and screw good ol’ dad over for child support.

For real?

We used to go bowling on field trips for gym class in HS.

Also, it used to be a cheap (and fun) date back in the day...gives you an excuse to “get a little closer” and show the young lass your with the right way to handle the ball(s).

Agreed, I wonder what Jeremiah felt like in his day. Who in the world would encourage a 14 year old girl to be responsible for the death of her own child?

You see all these innocent lives with no voice to cry out as they are murdered. I wonder if they will be with the souls under the alter in revelation crying out for justice.

Hellish - fourteen years old!! Who knows what kind of damage an abortion could cause her, of course besides killing her child and burdening her with the crime of murdering her own child.

I tried to take the family bowling last weekend, but they had a sign on their door that said “no weapons allowed on property”, so we played putt-putt somewhere else instead.

“Getting an abortion means getting a second chance,”

There is no second chance for your baby.

Pretending you never got pregnant is not a second chance. It's a denial of reality. Just as you may deny that it was a baby in the first place.

This ‘smart’ girl doesn’t know the proper use of an asprin?

“I mean, you gave me like more than a thousand dollars. There’s no way that me and my mom could have come up with that much.”

Something to consider when you hear about 14 year olds seeking abortions without notifying their parents.

Who pays for it? The ADULT who knocked up a child and doesn't want to be busted for statutory rape or molestation?

Nope never, closest thing was playing skeeball at Showbiz Pizza/Chuck E. Cheese. As I recall my brothers and I would cheat to get more tickets.

In grade school I once put dog doo in the gym teacher’s office.

There are so many things wrong with this. They just made a 14 year old a participant in the death of her own child. Like many women, she may find out the truth one day that what was present in the womb was far from a blob of tissue, but a living, breathing human being. There are so many couples out there who would have gladly adopted this child. If she wanted, she could have had an open adoption where she could visit on occasion and recieve updates.

This child was aborted at a minimum of 20 weeks because she got her money from the "George Tiller Memorial Fund." Here is a picture of a 20 week old child. The child would have looked like this:

Here is 22

if she went to Tiller, it means the “fetus” was probably a late term abortion, i.e. able to live outside the womb. Tiller’s specialty was killing it half born.

Second, if she was late in pregnancy at 14, it means she was probably 13 when she got pregnant, and that means she was raped....

so did they report and prosecute the daddy?.

Have faith that God’s plan is far, far better than anything we can devise. I’m often disappointed in this world, especially when I see people openly parade their sins. At one time, evildoers at least had the sense to do their deeds in the dark, but now they celebrate sin in the light of day.

God promises us He will set things aright. He’s patient and merciful in ways we cannot imagine, and many mistake His patience and mercy for cold indifference. It was prophesied that people will say the world is unchanging and believe Christ isn’t returning. That’s part of the plan, too.

Have faith.

And the girl's cavalier attitude after a late term murder doesn't really seem right. I have watched many a miserable and pain ridden mother walk out of a baby death mill, when it very likely wasn't wasn't a late term killing. I would think that a late term killing would be one horrible and miserable ordeal.

What you said is true and will probably come back to haunt her later in life when she realizes what she’s done.
