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.
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.
And in the shadows, Satan laughs.
You're just so.. so... so old school. *sarcasm off*
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.
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?
Tell her your group wants to abort a baby whale, and they’ll tie themselves to Sea World’s gates.
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.
I’ve never been bowling in my life.
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).
I saw this a couple weeks ago:
