For DECADES now, antis have tried to yuck Americans into opposing safe abortion. It hasn't been "just the activists" for a long, long time. May 20, 10:05 AM
.@marjoriesba saying abortion pix should go "beyond just the activists" is so disingenuous—moreso each time she or someone like her says it. May 20, 10:04 AM

I'll find @BobbyJindal's "big gov't" fear convincing when he speaks against his party's ceaseless attempts at legislating sex & family life. May 17, 8:04 PM

DC roof deck wine-and-mingle swag for the second time this week. Am I doing it wrong if I wish my dogs were here? #introvertschmooze May 17, 4:13 PM
UPDATE: You did it! My fundraising goal of $1000 has been not only met, but exceeded. And my superfly anonymous donor promises to match the little bit we went over, too. Thank you all so much!
This concludes my fundraising drive and my donor's match. But it DOES NOT conclude NNAF's need for donations. The wall of legislation that exists to block the reproductive rights of disadvantaged women is being built higher all the time. Until the Hyde Amendment is repealed, lower-income women need NNAF, which means NNAF needs you. Please give--thank you!
As my Twitter account neared the milestone of 1000 followers, it seemed like a celebration was in order. But how? By helping disadvantaged women pay for their abortions. Of course!
The National Network of Abortion Funds (NNAF) is dedicated to this work. How amazing to help a woman reclaim her life in the face of an unwanted or non-viable pregnancy---but how heartbreaking to have to say no, because your fund is out of money.
I decided to give $100 to the fund of my 1000th follower's choice. I mentioned the idea to a friend with some fundraising experience, and before I knew it I had a donor who was willing to match all the donations I could scare up, to a max of $500 for a matched grand total of $1000. FOR THE WIN.
So here's how we do.
Questions? Email or hit me on Twitter. Thanks a million to all of you---I'm so proud to be a part of such a fantastic movement! Extra-special thanks to my anonymous donation matcher person who is and will always be 10 feet tall in my eyes. Note: I have no affiliation with NNAF; I just think they're awesome.
