Recreational Abortion

A new one to me.

From Iowa, recreational abortion.
Sen. Jack Hatch, a Des Moines Democrat, said he doesn't expect the legislation to advance. But he said GOP lawmakers will likely again try to block the use of state Medicaid funds for a small number of abortions performed in cases of incest, rape or when the life of the mother is at risk.

“These are not recreational abortions, they are medically needed,” said Hatch said, who said he thought that any such effort would ultimately fail.
Hatch is prochoice. Clearly, the discourse on abortion is totally fucked up in Iowa when even prochoice people use the phrase.

I went looking for other instances of 'recreational abortion' and found some.

The Onion (of course) from 2004.

Recreational-Abortion Enthusiasts Applaud Repeal Of Partial-Birth Ban

WASHINGTON, DC—Hundreds of abortion enthusiasts gathered on the steps of the Supreme Court Monday to voice their support for recent rulings repealing the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act of 2003. "We just adore abortions, and now they're more convenient than ever," abortion lover Nayla Forster said. "Some women found it a real pain to squeeze the procedure in before the third trimester." Forster said that she personally tries to get out and have an abortion at least every four months or so.
Something called Issuepedia (who knew?) calls it a 'troll phrase'.

Then among a variety of fetus fetishist sites, I found this explanation: 'Recreational sexual intercourse leads to recreational abortion.'

Funny, innit, that 'creation' is part of both procreation and recreation?

We need a new movement: the anti-creation movement.
