Critics see pendant as fashion statement that glorifies abortion

An organization that helps poor women pay for abortions has stoked controversy by offering a ‘coat hanger’ pendant to contributors who donate $10 or more a month for women in Washington D.C., Maryland, and Virginia to terminate their pregnancies.

The D.C. Abortion Fund (DCAF) is offering the coat hanger pendant to supporters “as a token of our thanks.” The image is synonymous with the practice of self-induced abortion, where a coat hanger is inserted into the uterus through the cervix to rip the foetus apart.

After critics slammed the coat hanger pendant as insensitive, the group was forced to release a statement on its website today explaining the use of the symbol as “nothing new or even particularly newsworthy.”

The group asserts that, “The coat hanger has long been a symbol of the reproductive justice movement,” and claims that it was, “surprised by the conservative media’s ignorance of the history of the coat hanger’s symbolism.”

However, others see the pendant as a fashion statement that actually glorifies abortion.

“I honestly can’t believe that someone would celebrate the destruction of babies (boys, and YES millions of girls) as a fashion statement for feminists,” wrote Bristol Palin, daughter of Governor Sarah Palin.

“You know the phrase “they wear their heart of their sleeves?” Well, I guess DC feminists love to wear death on their necks,” she added.

Some feminists have adopted the coat hanger symbol as a “pro-choice” tattoo, while it is also a fairly common sight at pro-abortion rallies.

Instead of treating the issue of abortion with the sensitivity it undoubtedly demands, many feminists have crossed the line by brazenly celebrating abortion as if it was something to be proud of.

In 2004, abortion advocate and author Jennifer Baumgardner launched the “I Had an Abortion” project in order to encourage women who had terminated pregnancies to embrace their decision. In a promotional stunt for the campaign, feminist Gloria Steinem wore a t-shirt which read, “I had an abortion” while adopting a smiling, celebratory pose.
