According to a report by Live Action, “Avow,” a pro-abortion group formerly known as NARAL Pro-Choice Texas is giving its employees a yearly $3,000 stipend to spend on abortions.
According to Live Action:
In an interview with ReproJobs, Avow executive director Aimee Arrambide explained the benefits package. “It was my goal upon starting this job to make sure the staff was whole,” she said, explaining, “Some of the benefits included are employer-paid health, dental, vision, STD, LTD insurance, retirement match of 3%, flex time with core hours, remote working, unlimited paid time off, a three-month paid sabbatical after five years, six-month paid family leave, a $3,000 abortion stipend per year.” (emphasis added). The stipend covers abortions for employees as well as their family members.
Three thousand dollars is enough to cover one or more later abortions or multiple first-trimester abortions.
Lila Rose of Live Action responded, “This is an abhorrent policy. Abortion ‘benefits’ no one. Benefits are offered to save lives and allow for human thriving – abortion ends lives. This $3k stipend should be put towards life saving benefits and care of pregnant women, not the starvation, dismemberment, and death of their children.”
An interview with Texas Monthly makes the reason for the break more clear: Avow’s team wants the abortion movement to stop using euphemisms like “reproductive health,” and to be more open about their abortion advocacy, including focusing on abortion. “The opposition has only become more bold, more inflammatory,” Delma Catalina Limones, Avow’s communications manager, said. “We deserve a movement that is going to confront the issue and not always be on the defense.”
Do you think that Avow’s move to push for abortion up-to-birth while paying its employees to get abortions is going way too far?
