A pro-choice organization ignited a social media debate this week with a new campaign claiming abortion is an act of love and selflessness.
The “Abortion Actually” campaign by the National Women’s Law Center is intended to “reframe” the conversation and “fight back against the assault on abortion rights in our country,” according to the campaign’s website.
“Abortion – and the people who have them – have been called a lot of things. But what is abortion actually? An act of love. An act of compassion. An act of healing. An act of selflessness,” the website states.
Yumhee Park, senior manager of campaign and digital strategies for the National Women’s Law Center, wrote a blog explaining the usage of the words.
“If you’ve had an abortion or are thinking about getting an abortion, we see your love – for yourself and others, we see your healing and the healing of your communities, we see your self-preservation and your selflessness, we see your compassion, and we love you,” Park wrote.
Stepping up and raising a child - from birth to adulthood, whether you carry that child in your womb or you raise another woman's child, THAT is an "act of love and selfessness" - ask anyone woman who's raised a child!
