Skip to comments.Paying for Abortions, One Pendant at a Time
Posted on 03/22/2014 7:05:09 AM PDT by Kaslin
The D.C. Abortion Fund (DCAF) is giving a coat hanger pendant for each new donation of $10 or more per month to pay for low-income womens abortions in the D.C., Maryland and Virginia area as a token of [their] appreciation, in case you wanted a macabre reminder of your direct contribution to the killing of innocent babies. The pendant is based on their logo.
According to their 2013 Annual Report, of the 758 individuals who were offered grants to help pay for a portion of their abortion procedures, 546 (72 percent) were African-American women. Abortion is hitting the African-American community hard. A Guttmacher Institute report revealed that in the U.S., black children are aborted at nearly four times the rate of white children. Recently, the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene released a pregnancy statistics report for 2012 showing that abortions outnumber live births in the black community in NYC: 31,328 abortions to 24,758 live births. In the District of Columbia, 41 percent of pregnancies end in abortion, which is twice the national average.
DCAF pledged $164,168 on behalf of 758 pregnant women. Of those offered grants, 598 women used their pledges and received funding, totaling $132,525 in DCAF grants paid out. The average grant was $222 per woman. DCAF grew its base of women receiving abortion funds by 31 percent from 2012. Of the pledges made in 2013 by DCAF, 289 were for first trimester abortions, 410 were for second trimester abortions, and 59 were for abortions past 24 weeks.
Abortion is the war on women, pushed by those who dont understand the magnitude of harm they are inflicting on other women. Many women who have had abortions suffer physical damage: hemorrhage, infection, uterine perforation, cervical tears, blood clots, incomplete abortion, cardiac or respiratory arrest and death. They increase their chance for future pre-term births, miscarriage and breast cancer. Many more suffer psychological damage, having an astounding increase in the risk of depression, substance abuse and suicide.
Who funds DCAF? The following are some of their supporters and many are the usual suspects. We should make sure that not one of these supporters ever get a dime because they directly fund abortion.
Lets face it: No woman wants an abortion. She is cornered into it because she doesnt feel like she has the necessary support. She feels desperate. Groups like DCAF, their donors and funders are enablers in the destruction of children whose mothers are vulnerable.
What these women really need is to know that a total of 155 pregnancy resource centers exist in D.C., Virginia, and Maryland to support them and their babies in their time of need whether its with housing needs, food, clothes or medical care. Lets do all we can to help these mothers know that they are supported and that killing their babies in not the answer.
FYI..another very good article on the same topic, at National Review Online, "The Symbol of a Lie"
It totally debunks the "wirehanger abortion" mythology..
Thanks for the link. Yes it is also a good article on the subject
They should be proudly wearing pendants with a pair of scissors used to penetrate the heads of innocent babies before sucking out their brains.
I look at my grandson at thank God every day for his precious gift.
I knew someone, many many years ago, who got an abortion at a nasty clinic. (Tried so hard to talk her out of it). She said she couldn’t lose the “time” (and really, she couldn’t. It WAS a crucial time for her).
She ended up with MRSA in her gut before anyone was talking about it, and she lost more time and health than if she would have had the baby. It was tragic all around.
Thanks to abortion’s saints, like Gosnell and Tiller, along with laws permitting workers other than physicians to perform abortions, the coat hangar will return to the world of abortion as much more than just a pendant. The circle will be complete, and only in the world of liberalism could it happen. What they once despised will become their new idol.
What is MRSA, I never heard of it?
Bacteria resistant to antibiotics. Used to be rather rare, now is quite common. At the time, we were all astounded but an abortion clinic is just the kind of place a person could pick up such a thing.
It actually stands for Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus.
Do you know what percentage of women who had abortions are repeat offenders? There have been about 50 million abortions but that doesn’t necessarily mean that 50 million women have had abortions.
Not offhand. I’ve read the stories about women who are serial aborters...I suspect that between 30-35 million women have had abortions..
