Verbal Gymnastics

A pro-abortion group is promoting do-it-yourself, late-term chemical abortions.  Their video explains a step-by-step process that contains verbal gymnastics to avoid words explaining what happens.  These abortions are so dangerous they recommend it only be done in a medical facility, but if it’s instead a poor village far from medical help, do the best you can.  Babies are called “the pregnancy” and birth is referred to as “the expulsion.”  Since we’re talking about late-term abortions, babies are often born alive, which the video describes as “signs associated with life” like “breathing or movements.”  The video says, they “can be upsetting” but “usually go away after a few minutes.”  Verbal gymnastics.  We’re talking about killing babies and putting their moms at risk.
