  • Woman says: give me US$1 million or I abort my baby

    http://www.stuff.co.nz/life-style/pa...ng-an-abortion

    A woman, who is choosing to remain anonymous, has put up a site saying that the is 26 years old, and 7 weeks pregnant. On the 7th July, for 48 hours she will do a fundraising where if she raises US$1million, she will put it in a trustfund for the baby, and if she doesn't raise the $1Million she will abort her child.

    I find this morally reprehensible on so many level, but at the same time, I am considering donating what I can to save that innocent life.

    How do we know this is real? And why is someone making their baby into a hostage?! There are crisis pregnancy centers out there, no need to make it a hostage situation!

      She's trying to make a political statement I guess, but it very much comes across as give me the cash or I kill my baby.

        Pure greed.
        How do we know she is even really pregnant? There are so many online scams these days, people will say anything to get cash. I would certainly thoroughly check it out before donating a penny.

          She should give the kid up for adoption! How would a person feel if the found out their mom pulled this stunt? Whether this is true or not, she will be held accountable some day. I hope she comes to Jesus before it's too late.

            This statement by her is very telling:

            I have every intention of having an abortion, but I'm giving you a chance to stop it.
            And she's a coward by choosing to remain anonymous.

              Scam? Because if she got $999,999.99, she'd probably keep the money and have the abortion(if she is pregnant).

                I think it's a brilliant stunt that exposes the hypocrisy of the religious right in the US: Where they insist that children absolutely have to be born once conceived, regardless of whether the mother has the financial resources to care properly for the child, and then they advocate for economic policies to take away financial support from such people and oppress the poor, apparently doing their best to maximize the suffering of the child once it's born. Demanding money from them to prevent the abortion beautifully cuts through their hypocrisy on this issue.

                  It's extortion, pure and simple.

                    I think she's only demonstrating how truly sick the left fringe is.

                      And, below you see Starlight demonstrating how truly sick he is, as well....

                      Remember all the "do it for the children" nonsense coming from the left? Now they're wanting to hold children* hostage for cash payments. How sick is that?




                      *unborn, in this case

                            Perhaps Starlight called the stunt brilliant because he forgot the option to give up the baby for abortion.

                              He'd more likely recommend it be murdered after being born.
