Abortion Advocates Raise Money Through Bowl-A-Thon

Abortion Advocates Raise Money Through Bowl-A-Thon
An abortion rights group uses bowling to fund abortion.

The National Network of Abortion Funds (NNAF), a group that helps women pay for abortions, raised $474,835 through its third annual bowl-a-thon.

Bowling teams across the Nation assembled to raise money for abortions. Hundreds of teams participated including Coat Hanger, Feminist Drinking Club, Gutter Balls and Screwballs.

One of the recipients of the abortion fund is 14-year-old Darcy. According to a post on the group’s website, Darcy’s mom is behind on the bills, and the abortion would cost more than the family’s rent, so NNAF got involved. In a post titled “Getting an abortion means getting a second chance” Darcy says “Getting my abortion means I’m going to get a second chance. And I want to make it count.”

The non-profit organization’s motto is “because lives matter.” Their mission is to “fight for Medicaid coverage of abortion for women with low incomes. We also work to break down the barriers to abortion for immigrant women, young women, and women in jail and prison.”
