Now you can combine your abortion with your next spa treatment.
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.”
The clinic, opening this week in tony Friendship Heights, specializes in the abortion pill and will be unique for its advertising. Its unabashed approach also reflects a new push to destigmatize the nation’s most controversial medical procedure by talking about it openly and unapologetically.
The people who run the abortuaries are losing the debate about the humanity of unborn children, thanks in part to 3D ultrasound, so now, they’re retooling their approach.
They don’t say if you’ll be able to get a facial and a pedi while you’re killing your unborn child, or whether the spa-like atmosphere will ease your conscience about the decision to end a human life, but no doubt they’re going to try. Playing soothing music in the background and setting up shop in a toney neighborhood isn’t going to change the reality of what’s actually happening there — forcibly separating a human child from her mother’s womb.
