"I'm raising money so people can see a doctor!"
"I'm going bowling later! I'm raising money so people can see a doctor!" -- Avital Norman Nathman's 5-year old son was excited to bowl with the Abortion Rights Fund of Western Massachusetts in the first big weekend of the 3rd Annual National Abortion Access Bowl-a-Thon.
Over the weekend, teams of abortion fund activists bowled in Austin, Texas, in Fargo, North Dakota, Northhampton, Massachusetts, and in Las Vegas, Nevada with The Sin City Siren's awesome solo DIY team -- and with weeks still to go, the fundraising thermometer surged over $300,000!
Keep on rolling, bowlers! You really are "raising money so people can see a doctor." Thank you!

@NYAAF Yes, but on the other hand, someone who has enough $ for an abortion in her own city isn't necessarily "affluent" @Richard_Florida

@NYAAF @Richard_Florida Someone who has a modest income may be able to afford an abortion in her city. But not across the country.

@NYAAF @Richard_Florida Yes, but there really is a geography of abortion access as well.
