Bowling for abortions: Fundraiser for abortions for poor women raises $500K

An abortion fundraising group held its annual “Bowl-a-Thon” in April, raising more than $500,000 to “help women and girls pay for abortions they couldn’t otherwise afford.”

The fourth annual “National Abortion Access Bowl-a-Thon” broke fundraising records with a total of $552,498 raised.

“THANK YOU for making the Fourth Annual National Abortion Access Bowl-a-Thon such a success!” the National Network of Abortion Funds (NNAF), which sponsors the event, wrote on its website.  “Together, you raised over a HALF A MILLION DOLLARS for abortion access—nearly $50,000 more than the initial goal”

As previously reported, the group raised $466,014 from the Bowl-a-Thon in 2012.
