CNN host Sally Kohn had an important PSA for her Twitter followers yesterday.
YOU GUYS!!! I’m bowling for abortion access. Donate now. http://t.co/pmVvZBxHtl— Sally Kohn (@sallykohn) March 24, 2015
If you click on the link, you learn that Kohn is joining the National Abortion Access Bowl-A-Thon in an effort to raise money for abortions. The event is a nationwide series from the National Network of Abortion Funds that allows community members to raise money to help pay for abortions with their friendly neighborhood abortion funds (their words, not mine.) On her
I'm bowling because I believe that everyone should have access to the abortions they need, regardless of how much money they have.
Because of unfair and unnecessary laws, safe and legal abortions can be out of reach of those who don't have the money to pay for them. I don't think that's right, so I'm doing something about it. I'm bowling to break down barriers to abortion access.
I'm lacing up my shoes and polishing my bowling ball to raise money for my local abortion fund, the New York Abortion Access Fund (NYAAF).
You can help me hit my goal, and together, we can make an immediate difference with real impact.
Tempting. Yet, instead of joining her, many social media users responded in disgust.
@sallykohn Abortion fundraisers. I sincerely hope your average is lower than a perfect hand in blackjack.— Stacey Lennox (@ScotsFyre) March 24, 2015
But, my hands down favorite had to be this message from The Blaze’s Dana Loesch, in which she used Kohn's pro-abortion promotion to donate to the National Right to Life organization.
Loesch’s tweet was much more popular, getting retweeted more than twice as many times as Kohn’s. I guess people would rather donate to save lives than to destroy them.
The NNAF Abortion Bowl-a-thon has been around for six years now, but this seems to be the first time such a high profile name has signed onto the campaign. In 2012, LifeNews explained how the event was little more than a fundraising scheme, encouraging participants to raise money as if it’s a worthwhile causes like walking to cure life threatening diseases.
Please "join" me in rejecting Kohn’s call for donations and cheering for her to strike out.
