A pro-abortion group is inviting its supporters to come “smash away your feelings” and “fund abortion” at an event in Little Rock later this month.
In a promotional email obtained by Family Council, Arkansas Abortion Support Network writes,
Do you need to get some aggression out? Do you like funding abortion? Have we got a deal for you!
Join us for Smash-A-Thon on Saturday, May 27th! We’ll have dishes, glasses, bottles, maybe some electronics, and a CAR that you can smash, break, and destroy. We’ll provide all smashing implements and safety gear. You bring your rage, some enthusiasm for smashing, and a desire to fund abortion.
A registration web page for the event advertises, “Fund Abortion. Build Power. Smash the Patriarchy.”
The event is part of the National Network of Abortion Funds’ annual Fund-A-Thon, and will take place on Office Park Drive in Little Rock — across the street from what used to be a surgical abortion facility. Following the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to reverse Roe v. Wade, the abortion facility closed, and Arkansas Abortion Support Network began utilizing the location.
Arkansas Abortion Support Network refers women to abortion facilities in other states. The group’s website promotes information about “self-managed” abortions via abortion-inducing drugs, and historically has lobbied against pro-life legislation at the Arkansas Capitol.
All of this underscores what we have said in the past: It’s important to prohibit abortion through legislation, but we need to work to eliminate the demand for abortion as well.
One way Arkansans can do that is by supporting pro-life organizations that empower women with real options besides abortion.
Arkansas is home to more than 60 organizations that assist pregnant women — including some 45 pregnancy resource centers that help women with unplanned pregnancies.
As we recently noted, the State of Arkansas is nearly finished awarding $1 million in grants to pregnancy-help organizations for the 2022-2023 budget cycle and is set to provide additional funding in the coming months. That money is going to help a lot of women and children in Arkansas.
