People around the world use the GoFundMe web site and it’s normally a place for heartwarming campaigns to help people who have adverse medical conditions, who have been in accidents or who are raising money for other people in need or good causes. But one woman is using it to raise funds for her abortion.
Bailey’s Abortion Fund has already raised $1,654 of $2,500 by 106 people over the last two days who want to give her their hard-earned cash to pay to kill her baby in an abortion.
UPDATE AT 1:30 p.m. ET: The funding page has been taken down. LifeNews has reached out to GoFundMe for comment and has yet to receive a reply.
With the projected cost of the abortion well over the typical $450-$500 price for an early term abortion, it’s obvious that Bailey and her boyfriend are raising funds to take the life of their child in a late abortion near viability. The couple say they are raising funds for the abortion because insurance will not cover it.
“Bailey needs an abortion,” the page claims in a post. “Some of you know and love her. Some of you probably wish you could be her. She is the most important person in my entire life, and even though I didn’t help create the fetus inside of her, we need to get rid of it, because this affects me just as much as it does her.”
“Bailey is currently unemployed, completely broke, in debt, and in no position to hold down a job due to severe symptoms of a rough, unplanned and unexpected pregnancy,” the page continues. “Aside from having no desire to raise a child, she is economically unstable and can barely afford to support herself, which means having enough money to pay rent, smoke cigarettes, drink rockstar, support her friends in prison, and if she’s really busted her ass, maybe go to a show or two.”
If you’re following, apparently Bailey “needs an abortion” because having a baby would get in the way of her party lifestyle — catching rock shows and smoking.
Is the campaign real? Apparently so. Bailey recently spoke with Vice about it, where she says she is 19 weeks along.
“I’m hoping people will [donate], but it’s also totally fine if people don’t. I know if I saw something like this I’d be like, I want to help this person to make sure they live the life they want to live. It’s more time-sensitive than some of the other things that you see,” she said. “It’s scary. It’s a surgery. In Illinois it’s a two-day surgery. And it’s painful, like any surgery is going to be. It’s just an absolutely necessary thing, so I’m more nervous about running out of time than any pain.”
