Episcopal minister Rev. Katherine Ragsdale, with her organization National Abortion Federation, will hand out pre-paid gas cards for women seeking abortions, the Christian Headlines website reports today (August 30, 2019).
Ragsdale believes the initiative will provide more support for women "so that they can make, and act on the best decisions for themselves and their families."
The pilot program will run for three months and start in states that have waiting periods or other abortion restrictions.
As the first lesbian to become a leader of an Episcopal seminary, Ragsdale has been no stranger to controversy. "Abortion is a blessing and our work is not done," she said at a pro-abortion rally recently.
