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-olds 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 groups 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.
Theres 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.
Darcys story is also featured in the organizations spring 2010 newsletter that states she contacted the George Tiller Memorial Abortion Fund for help. Yall were just so nice, the girl said in the newsletter. I mean, you gave me like more than a thousand dollars. Theres 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.
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.
Oops, just pinged this one.
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.
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?
Apparently delayed gratification isn’t part of her vocabulary.
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.
Skeeball’s making a comeback actually.
“In grade school I once put dog doo in the gym teachers office.”
That’s AWESOME!!! What happened?
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
I presume he found it and was moderately grossed out.
I didn’t dislike him or anything but his office was open so....
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.
You’re all beast, Impy!
What you said is true and will probably come back to haunt her later in life when she realizes what she’s done.
