  • Woman Asks Pro-Life Movement to Donate $1 Million to Prevent Her Abortion

    Pro-life and pro-choice advocates today both criticized a website recently launched by a woman who says that she is seven weeks pregnant and is demanding $1 million from pro-life supporters in exchange for not having an abortion.

    The website, prolifeantiwoman.com, asks in large print, "How much would you pay to stop an abortion?"

    "I have every intention of having an abortion," the woman writes anonymously in an essay posted to the site, "but I'm giving you a chance to stop it."

    ...

    Beginning on July 7, the woman will give pro-life advocates 72 hours to make donations. If they reach $1 million, she says that she will deliver the baby, give it up for adoption, and put all of the money in a trust fund for her child. If that amount is not raised, she will return the donations and go through with an abortion that she has already scheduled for July 10.

    How much does it cost to raise a child in the United States? Last I heard, it wasn't no million dollars...

    This is simply blackmail and I am a bit uneasy with this. Not everything should have a dollar value attached to it. I do however understand her hostility towards recent Republican actions to limit Abortion. This is just the wrong way to protest those laws.

        I too can understand the point she's trying to make.

        However, what she is doing is demanding a ransom for what could become a human life.

        Abortion is not something that should be treated so flippantly and used as a political tool just to create a "gotcha!" moment for her own personal satisfaction. It should not be easy or routine or something you crowd source.

          Well, it's sort of the same as asking a class full of freshmen college students what a human life is worth. You get all these "It's priceless," "You can't put a price on it..." sort of replies.

          Pass out those "Save a starving child for $12 a month" cards and tell the class to fill them out. Watch how quick you can put a price on a human life and it ain't much.

            What could become a human life?

            What else but a human life could the baby become?

              I think he means it could become a human life if she doesn't kill it.

                      This could be an interesting test case, if these actions are illegal in some way.

                          I wouldn't be surprised if she conceived solely for the purpose of this stunt.

                            It's unsavory to say the least, and the woman obviously has no respect for either her baby's life or for the views of other people. Some things that people come up with may not have a specific law against them, but in my opinion she should be ignored by everybody, including the 'anti-lifers' who might otherwise cheer on her agenda. There is such thing as human decency and social conscience, or at least there should be, and she's crossed the line and she should be mercilessly ridiculed by all parties.

                            If she got any donations at all for this we would certainly see other women doing the same and it could even lead to women getting pregnant on purpose just to make a few bucks before they get their abortions.

                              Nonsense.

                              She has already demonstrated what value her own child has for her: nothing save an opportunity for money/fame.

                              Her absence of morality or human value places no obligations upon others.
                              Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.
