Its been a while so I will start by simply saying "hello everyone."
As to the linked page, I will state that I am personally pro-life but I don't feel the need to tell others what they can or cannot do as long as it doesn't impact my life of loved ones.
However this chick strikes me as quite the sicko. I view her intent much the same as a hostage taker. Essentially that is exactly what this seems to be to me. IF she remains true to the article then I suppose that she is not profiting from this bullchit; but at the same time, I feel as though this should be a crime if it is in fact not a crime already.
So then I am left to wonder what exactly is her motivation for doing this. I suppose that it could be an attempt at a "gotcha" toward the pro-life crowd. Perhaps it is an attempt to assuage personal anguish for the decision that she already intends to make. Perhaps she is just sadistic and desires to project some measure of culpability onto the pro-life crowd should her effort to raise a million bucks fail. Perhaps she is just a batchit crazy attention wore.
In any event it does raise a conflict in me because as I stated, I am pro-life. I am also of the mind that you never pay ransom due to the fact that if you pay ransoms then you create more hostage situations....as I stated I view this to be. So now I feel as though I have to hope that the pro-life crowd will not raise the money. That feels the same as hoping that this child will die.
In summary I think that this woman is a piece of chit. Not because she is having an abortion but because she knowingly using what many people would consider a life as a bartering chip in an effort to prove a point.

Sounds like it could be a crime since a life is being held for ransom.
