Aside from Planned Parenthood, NAF, and NARAL, we also have the NNAF (National Network of Abortion Funds). This stellar group has some great ideas for women who cannot afford abortion that include lying, going into debt, and asking your church! Here’s what the group encouraged in a recent article:
- Do I have a credit card? Does a friend or family member have one? (If I have time, can I apply for a new card? Could I request a limit increase, which can often take effect on the next business day? I can put just a portion of the cost on a credit card if my limit isn’t high enough.)
- Can I get a line of credit at my bank?
- Is there an emergency fund at my church?
- Can I use my cable bill money toward my abortion and then ask someone else for help with my cable bill?
- Are there people who might not help me cover the cost of an abortion, but would help me cover other costs? Am I comfortable lying to a friend or family member, telling them that I had an unexpectedly high electric bill or gas bill due to heating or A/C costs?
- Are there bills that I can pay late or skip this month? Can I talk to the electric company about changing the due date for my bill? (Note that it’s illegal for utilities to shut off the heat source for non-payment during the coldest winter months.)
With so many groups “looking out for women” we can all rest easy. But seriously, when a group encourages people to lie and go into debt in order to kill a child can we expect ethical treatment of women or the law elsewhere? Not in my opinion. Click here for original article.
