    Indeed there is.

    Chrawnus,

    If she is pregnant.

    If she's actually planning this

    If she is even a woman.

    This anonymous posting, that won't even take money for 5 days, absolutely reeks of being a clickbait attempt at going viral to make some sort of political point.

    So, no, I don't think the core premise of the site is real.

    It's a troll...

      It is pretty stunty, unfortunately it's also plausible

        But let's assume it's just some moron trying to troll pro-lifers. In that case this whole charade is going to reflect far worse on the pro-choice movement rather than the pro-life movement, which means that pro-choicers should be protesting this stunt far more vigorously than us pro-lifers.

          Okay, so we have:
          A. this is a real thing, 100%
          B. there is a pregnant woman, but she just wants to make a point.
          C. Someone is running a scam and none of it is real or only parts.
          D. Someone is just being a stupid troll and there is no baby in danger.

          So, there may or may not be a baby, may not be a pregnant woman, may not be an abortion, etc.
          If it weren't for the Resurrection of Jesus, we'd all be in DEEP TROUBLE!

            If she says she's a woman then she is and if you say otherwise you're oppressing her.

              But pro-life people might end up looking naive/gullible! Which is not as bad as being an evil scammer/extortionist/etc.

                If pro-lifers donate the money, not only will they create a market for doing this stunt again, but they will send a message that they accept personal financial responsibility whenever anybody becomes pregnant, whether they need the help or not.

                (Before anybody takes my words out of context, no, I am not criticizing churches that provide material support to young mothers in need. I am criticizing the idea that anybody who gets pregnant can demand money whether they really need it or not.)
                "I am not angered that the Moral Majority boys campaign against abortion. I am angry when the same men who say, "Save OUR children" bellow "Build more and bigger bombers." That's right! Blast the children in other nations into eternity, or limbless misery as they lay crippled from "OUR" bombers! This does not jell." - Leonard Ravenhill

                  It's possible that it's a troll. But the fact of the matter is that if you believe that there is nothing wrong with terminating the life of a human being inside of your own womb then a major obstacle to actually going through with a stunt like this has already been removed. If you don't actually believe that someone is being killed when you're getting an abortion, and you also seem to have the kind of irrational hatred towards the pro-life movement that the woman in question seems to have based on what she's written on her site, then pulling a stunt like this doesn't suddenly seem as far-fetched anymore.

                  But you're correct. It's possible this is just a stunt for publicity. In that case one has to wonder if it's a pro-lifer trying to make the pro-choice movement look bad, or if it's a pro-choice person not realizing that the stunt is going to backfire spectacularly.

                    While the circumstances of this particular situation look like it's trolling. I can certainly imagine that there are some women in the world who choose to have abortions because they don't feel they have the financial means of caring for the baby, and if someone was to offer them a million dollars of financial support then they would happily change their minds and keep the baby. So while this particular person is probably trolling, the concept behind it is interesting.

                      She claims she will put the money into a trust fund, but I am inclined to doubt that.

                        Indeed. There is much evidence required(name, positive pregnancy test, witnesses to proof that trust fund will be set up), and even if it were true, she should just take advantage of the local pregnancy crisis center.

                          Or, here's a novel idea. She and the guy she was with should have kept their pants on and she wouldn't be in this situation.

                          If indeed she is.

                              One has to wonder though. If this is not a trolling attempt, and she is actually serious, did she get pregnant by mistake and decided to pull this stunt after the fact, or did she get pregnant solely for this reason?

                                That would be insane... How could someone deliberately get pregnant just so they could use the baby as a hostage???
