Carafem practitioners do not perform surgical abortions. And anyone coming for a consultation might be offered a robe or a cloth drape to wear. An accompanying friend or relative might warm their hands around a cup of tea, or be invited to sit on a purple sofa with throw pillows while discussing intrauterine contraceptives . . .
The Whole Woman’s Health series of clinics, which began in Texas in 2003, features lilac hallways and dim lighting to set a soothing ambience. Rooms named after prominent women have walls that are stencilled with empowering quotes.
That matter-of-fact approach is reflected in Carafem’s advertising.
Pink billboards around Washington (D.C.) streets and metro stations have sprung up, proclaiming: “ABORTION. Yeah, we do that.”
An attempt to normalize infanticide; in Washington, D.C. no less; right under the noses of our Representatives and Senators.
I’ve never heard of Whole Woman’s Health or Carafem before; have to read all about it . . . in the Canadian Press. :o
