Hurricane Harvey, between its wind and days of historic rainfall, caused a laundry-list of problems in southeast Texas and turned thousands of people's lives upside-down.
Homes flooded. Properties destroyed. Dead family members. Texans have faced it all. Hundreds of organizations and tens of thousands of Americans nationwide have turned to donate and volunteer in the storm ravaged areas.
But some organizations are focusing on something much, much different.
NARAL, one of the nation's leading pro-choice — really, pro-abortion — organizations, posted tweets to its official Twitter account on Friday lamenting over the lack of abortions happening in Texas due to Hurricane Harvey.
It also directed its users to support the Lilith Fund, which is supposedly helping Texans receive abortions in the wake of Harvey.
"Join us in supporting Harvey survivors seeking an abortion but cannot afford it," a Lilith picture read.

The National Network of Abortion Funds also got in on the action:

The scathing response
Considering that water rescues are still ongoing and recovery efforts will take months, possibly even years, it wouldn't be far-fetched to say that NARAL's interests are a bit out-of-touch.
But never waste a good opportunity to raise money for your sinister organization, right? Right...
The response to the posturing has been scathing:
While people are working hard and fighting to save lives, your mission is asking money to end lives. See there the face of evil!— Sandra WhoSoEver (@SandraWhosoever) September 1, 2017
The Lilith Fund is very appropriately named for a demon who steals away babies in the night pic.twitter.com/qs96tpQ9mX— David Janssen (@dabenjanssen) August 31, 2017
Purely demonic— Patriot (@jmj4life7) September 1, 2017
How about offer bottles or binkies or maybe diapers or food money etc instead of death— FitButFlawed (@FitButFlawed) September 1, 2017
You're actually trying to raise money for people suffering from hurricane to be able to suffer more by killing their babies. How corrupt!— MauDab (@maudab) September 1, 2017
This is beyond obscene. These people have damaged consciences. To them right is wrong, and wrong is right. May God forgive this nation— mackb (@rmackb) September 1, 2017
Decency still exists in America.
