A New Euphemism!

Sassy, in the comments here, informs us of another bit of Sanity on the Rise.

The UK is going to allow TV ads for private abortion clinics.

Previously, ads for reproductive services had been allowed only for non-profit clincs. Only one ad was run and remember the SHRIEEKING that occasioned?

So this should be even more fun.

What struck me in Sassy's link though is the new euphemism.
A source close to the changes said: ‘This isn’t about all-out adverts for abortion – it’s for post-conception advisory services. It will be places saying, “Come and chat to us for advice”. Of course, a lot of those organisations will provide terminations.

I just love it. It will drive fetus fetishists around the twist.
