Big props to the new abortion clinic Carafem in Washington, DC.
It's got ALL the fetus freaks' knickers knotted.
With its natural wood floors and plush upholstery, Carafem aims to feel more like a spa than a medical clinic. But the slick ads set to go up in Metro stations across the Washington region leave nothing to doubt: “Abortion. Yeah, we do that.”Website.
The Maryland clinic, opening this week in Montgomery County’s tony Friendship Heights area, specializes in the abortion pill. The advertising reflects its unabashed approach — and a new push to de-stigmatize the nation’s most controversial medical procedure by talking about it openly and unapologetically.
It's hard to say what has the freaks most outraged -- that women could be treated decently, that abortion could be treated like any other medical procedure, or that a business, yes, a business, could aim to help destigmatize a common life event.
The Dominionist Astroturf Gang, We Need a Law (Like a Hole in the Head), is appalled that the furniture is comfy.
SUZY ALL-CAPS is SHRIEEKING that abortion will be destigmatized OVER HER DEAD BODY!!!!!!!!
Kay Mère, as befits her very limited cognitive processing ability, is all over the map in her objections.
She cites a "left-leaning think tank" that points out that destigmatization worked for the LBGT community by sharing stories and coming out to friends and families.
But this is an untenable comparison. Gays are human beings with a minority sexual orientation.As opposed to people who have abortions who are not human beings but amoral, irresponsible baby-killing sluts.
Ultimately, what bugs her the most is that Carafem is a business and this new and humane approach to a common procedure may make them money!!!!
The Focus on the Family Astroturf Gang, as usual, takes its cue from Kay, considered to be among the more "reasonable" of anti-choicers, and squeals about the profit.
Well, shut my mouth. I thought all these right-wing nut-jobs worshipped at the altar of the Free Market.
These are the same people eager to label any efforts by government to regulate contraception and abortion services as Communist! Fascist! Maoist! (You get the idea.)
Yet, these are also the people who revelled in the gore and filth of Kermit Gosnell's totally unregulated predatory racket.
But who insisted that there must be Gosnells in Canada. We just haven't caught them yet.
This Carafem development has them shoved back in that terrible pickle again.
HORRORS! People needing abortions are being treated decently.
HORRORS! People needing abortions (in the US) must pay for them and so will prompt entrepreneurs to cater to them.
HORRORS! If people needing abortions are treated decently, there will be no more Gosnells, no more stigma, no more needless suffering.
Ha. I say again -- props to Carafem.
By the way, the cost of a medical abortion at Carafem is below average.
The average pharmaceutical abortion cost about $500 in the United States in 2011, Guttmacher figures show; [Carafem President Christopher] Purdy plans to charge around $400.
