Remember the website on which an anonymous woman claimed she was 7 weeks pregnant and offered not to have an abortion if people donated $1 million to stop her?
Well — Surprise! – “she” is a he who has other questionable internet sites.
If you click on the website now, you’ll find a claim that the earlier site was an “augmented excerpt” (whatever that is) fro a novel.
In short, the whole thing is a hoax.
A supposed demand by a woman on an anonymous web site who wanted pro-life people to give her $1 million to stop her from aborting her 7-week-old unborn baby turned out to be a hoax. As LifeNews originally reported last week, the web site in question is registered to a person living in Japan who cybersquats domains in an effort to build traffic and sell them at a higher price.
Supposedly, a 26-year-old woman who wants to remain anonymous has shared online that she is seven-weeks-pregnant and plans to have an abortion on July 10th. However, if pro-lifers can raise one million dollars in 72-hours she says she will not have the abortion and place the baby for adoption.
She selected 72-hours intentionally because she wanted to draw attention to the laws that recently passed requiring women to wait 72-hours prior to an abortion.
But is the abortion ransom just a ploy to draw attention to the pro-abortion side of the abortion debate? The tone of the woman’s missive suggests she’s an abortion activist rather than a pregnant woman who’s truly struggling with an unplanned pregnancy as it employs some of the verbal rhetoric typically coming from pro-abortion groups like NARAL and Planned Parenthood.
Further investigation made it appear the web site itself is nothing more than a hoax.
The allegedly pregnant-woman’s web site is registered to a man named Michael Weber who supposedly resides in Japan and the domain’s email contact for the domain is registered to the same Japanese-based man under an address in Tokyo. Here is what a WHOIS search shows.
