Pro-Abortion Group Gives Away Free Food and Lodging So Women Will Have Abortions

Rather than offering resources to help moms and babies, a radical pro-abortion group is giving Wisconsin women free food and shelter if they abort their babies.

NARAL Pro-Choice Wisconsin is starting a new program called Patient Stays Wisconsin in response to several abortion facilities closing in the state, the pro-abortion group told The Cap Times. The program will connect women seeking abortions with volunteers who will provide rooms, meals and “emotional support,” according to the group.

“Wisconsin’s recent restrictions to abortion access make getting an abortion more difficult and emotionally taxing than it needs to be,” the group said in a press release. “For instance, the mandatory 24-hour waiting period between counseling and the abortion procedure often means women have to make two trips. This places unnecessary burdens on people likely to have work and family obligations.”

Julaine K. Appling, president of Wisconsin Family Action, said NARAL’s new program is a “seemingly caring act” that encourages abortion.

“NARAL Pro-Choice’s new plan actually highlights what we’ve been saying all along—abortion isn’t just life-ending for the baby, it’s traumatic for the woman,” Appling said. “Often the pro-abortion groups are all about the ‘right to choose’ and not really concerned with the trauma the woman experiences.

“I’d much prefer that women contemplating an abortion visit a supportive Pregnancy Resource Center to learn about their real options, including adoption, rather than enjoy a free night’s stay compliments of a group that profits from their abortion.”

Just three abortion centers remain open in Wisconsin, according to the report. One recently closed after it couldn’t find an abortionist to kill unborn babies, LifeNews previously reported.

The Wisconsin health department released new abortion numbers in August, providing additional evidence that the state’s pro-life laws are saving lives. The state recently cut taxpayer funding to Planned Parenthood and passed a law ensuring that women seeking abortions are given the opportunity to see their unborn children via ultrasound.

As a result, 662 babies’ lives were saved from abortion in 2014 in Wisconsin, according to the state health department numbers.

NARAL, which fights against pro-life legislation and supports abortion on demand through all nine months, said it expects dozens of women to use the new program.
