Bowl-A-Thon Raised Money for 14-Year-Old’s Abortion

More information is coming in on a national bowling marathon sponsored by a national organization that raises funds for abortions for women who can’t afford them. Some of the money is going to pay for abortions for girls as young as 14.

As Tim Graham of Newsbusters notes:

Liz Harrington at reports 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.

Steve Aden of the Alliance Defense Fund profiled the event beforehand:

After all we’ve seen and heard regarding abortion in the 21st century—all the justifications for gender-selective abortions, for killing preborn handicapped babies, and even for having a window of time in which it’s acceptable to kill children after birth—proponents of the culture of death still surprise many people from time to time.

For example, Planned Parenthood surprised sensible, rational Americans when it recently held 40 days of prayer for abortion, abortion rights, and women that have been “punished” with an unwanted baby. And prior to that, President Barack Obama did it when he mandated that employers pay for their employees’ abortion pills and contraceptives, whether the employer wants to or not.

But off the radar of major news outlets like Fox News and CNN, or newspapers like The Los Angeles Times and The Chicago Tribune, another culture-of-death surprise has been taking place—namely, the National Abortion Access Bowl-A-Thon.

That’s right—proponents of the culture of death have spent April gathering in frivolous events held at bowling alleys around the country, where the goal is to raise money for abortion funds, which in turn disperse money to pay for the abortions of women who otherwise couldn’t afford to kill their preborn children.
