Amelia Bonow, co-founder of the Shout Your Abortion movement, appeared in a grotesque video posted last month to convince children it’s OK to abort babies. She told them that life doesn’t begin until after birth and that abortionists simply “suck the pregnancy out.”
In contrast, the pro-life group Choice42 posted a video this month that mocks pro-abortion euphemisms (see below), bleeping out the word “abortion.” An actress, dressed in a pink wig familiar to those who’ve seen earlier videos in the #JustSaying series, asks, “Why say, [abortion] when you can say, ‘empowerment’? Words like coercion, killing, regret are not helpful. Just saying. Stick to more uplifting terms such as self-care, healthcare, repro rights, or, my favorite, choice. Brilliant, really. So simple and yet so void of anything truthful.” —S.G.
