A Texas abortion owner wants to use the abortion suction machines at her closed facility for “show and tell” to reduce what she calls “abortion stigma.”
Texas has been the site where several abortion clinics have closed because they could not comply with state law that requires abortion facilities comply with the minimum health and safety standards adopted by the State for ambulatory surgical centers, and that abortionists have admitting privileges in a local hospital near an abortion clinic.
The radical pro-abortion blog, RH Reality Check spoke to Amy Hagstrom Miller who operates several abortion clinics in Texas under the name Whole Woman’s Health.
Now that pro-life legislation is closing many abortion facilities in the state, Hagstrom Miller has come up with a new scheme to remain “relevant” and “shift abortion stigma,” a program she calls SHIFT.
Shift, according to Hagstrom Miller, is a group “working to strategically shift the stigma around abortion in our culture,” and “committed to fostering open and honest conversations, lifting up all communities, and advocating for reproductive freedom.”
To accomplish this goal, the abortion owner has created a non profit she will operate from her now closed Austin facility called, ChoiceWorks, which she describes as “working to strategically shift the stigma around abortion in our culture.”
The idea is to use the closed death camp as a “kind of an Abortion University” where Hagstrom Miller will teach an “Abortion 101” workshop.
Maybe the clinic owner will use her Beaumont center in this “Abortion University” workshop of sorts as well.
A 2013, state inspectors found that Whole Woman’s Health Beamont clinic failed to have some of the same life-saving tools on site that convicted abortionist Kermit Gosnell was cited for in Pennsylvania.
Hagstrom Miller told RH Reality Check that she always fantasize about what it would look like if abortion care were treated as, “legitimate in women’s health care, just like miscarriage management or delivery?”
“Some of our programs are inviting people to come into the clinic—this, where we’re talking, is one of those clinics. We have a safe space where we kind of re-enact a day in the life of a clinic for not just the media, but our allies. We’ll walk through, literally from the phone call all the way through the paperwork, ultrasound, and counseling, so people can see how regulations actually affect the service, experientially. But then we could also have this interaction where people can, in a safe place, say, “But what is that you’re seeing in the ultrasound? What happens in the ultrasound? Can I see the instruments?” And they’ll say things like, “Oh my goodness, there aren’t any sharp instruments,” or “Can I see the fetal tissue?” or whatever. A safe place where we can do education about what actually happens.”
Pro-lifers have been educating the public on what an abortion looks like for years.
ABORTION IS GOOD?
The abortion chain operator told the pro-choice blog that she wants society to think of abortion as good.
“Nobody’s talking about abortion as though it’s a good in our society, or as though good women would have an abortion. I had this banner outside Whole Woman’s Health for years that said, “Good women have abortions.” People flipped out,” Hagstrom Miller said.
Killing babies is good in our society?
Did we mention www.100abortionpictures.com?
Or….www.childpredators.com which documents how pedophiles use abortion to cover child sexual abuse?
What about the many women who regret their abortions?
Hagstrom Miller said that her new abortion adventure is her way of “turning lemons into lemonade.”
“I have, as it turns out, a bunch of suction machines I don’t know what to do with. So if they can become used for show and tell? Awesome,” she stated.
You cannot make this stuff up.
As Mark Crutcher, president of Life Dynamics has said many times, the pro-choice mindset comes from mental illness.
Listen to him explain this on a recent Life Talk TV show.
END LIFE DYNAMICS:
Despite the fact that one of Amy Hagstrom Miller’s own abortion facilities has been cited for safety violations, Hagstroim Miller said this:
“The bad provider thing is rough. How can we talk about that? Whenever I see the word “access,” I don’t want access to abortion, I want access to quality abortion. I host little debates within the field: Is any abortion a good abortion? I don’t think so. I want us to have those ethical debates.”
The Texas abortion chain owner does subscribe to the ideology that women who have abortions need to talk about them:
“People say, “People just need to tell their abortion stories,” and I’m like, no they fucking don’t. I mean, I love when they do. But we can’t make shifting the movement that person’s burden. That’s not her fucking job. She doesn’t owe that to us. So I get super animated about this, “Oh we just need to have more patients tell their stories,” you know? No we don’t! We have providers that don’t talk about what they do.”
But she added that she wants men to talk about how abortion benefits them,”Because I want a frame where we can talk about how men benefit from abortion.”
She concluded by stating all the things she believed abortion providers were afriad to be asked about:
“So that we don’t leave what my friend Charlotte Taft calls the “crumbs at the picnic.” We have a picnic and we don’t clean up and anti-choicers grab every little crumb. Abortion, money! Ooh, “late-term” abortion! Fetal pain! Oh, sex-selection! I could make a list of all the things that all of us are terrified of being asked about. That’s totally by design.”
