  •  We probably should already have it (4.00)
    Actually, it's what I'd like to see Planned Parenthood and Naral and NOW and Feminist Majority fund raise for at this point, rather than money for politicians. They should be providing stipends for all of the women and girls in states that have such onerous restrictions to travel, to stay in motel rooms, and to have the procedure.

    •  I disagree (none)
      Politicians don't give a rat's ass about the interests of any group that doesn't give them money.

      Sad, I agree, but that's what we're dealing with here.

    •  I think (none)
      I've seen such an org mentioned around here.  I don't remember the name, but it would be worthwhile to find them & start contributing.  Even if a state makes it illegal to transport a minor across state lines for an abortion, giving someone money is still legal.

        Has a directory of exisiting funds across the country.  http://www.nnaf.org/...  

        I have used the one in my state several times to get funding for teens who had no other source of help.  

        They save lives and will need support now more than ever.

          I've bookmarked it & will spread the word.  It's too bad we need a new underground RR.  Good to know it's up & running.
