This is a post about euphemisms and double standards.
Carol Downer was just a guest on CBC’s The Current. I got a call (thank you) to tune in, and only caught the end, but Carol advocates for Do It Yourself Abortions. Only she doesn’t call them abortions. She calls an abortion “menstrual extraction.” Funny that, I’m pretty sure women who get unexpectedly pregnant don’t generally feel crappy because it’s just one heck of a period.
So the lady is not a doctor, a nurse or a medical person of any kind and she wants to do abortions at home, but won’t call them that.
Introducing your “women’s rights advocates,” my friends.
Brigitte adds: If you have the stomach for it, go read the description Wikipedia has for “menstrual extraction”.by
