Last week, Teen Vogue celebrated the killing of the unborn in a warped piece that suggested gift ideas for young girls who tragically succumb to the pressure to abort their children. Disguised as compassion, the magazine aimed at impressionable teens portrays abortion as an empowering act while lamenting the stigma attached to it, not because the procedure ends the life of an innocent unborn child, but because pro-lifers are mean, or something.
Quick aside: Nowhere in the article of "choice" is there a mention of pregnancy crises centers or adoption. Weird.
As most pro-abortion pieces do, the celebratory piece inadvertently reaffirms the horrific nature of abortion, though not without effort to camouflage it.
"So your friend is about to have an abortion. Of course you want to be there for her, but you don’t know how. Look, making this decision is never simple, and having to make it as a teenager is more than a little terrifying," acknowledges the piece. Some of the recommended "gifts" are telling in this respect, too, such as chocolates that say "I love you" and uplifting poetry.
So, why is it "terrifying"? Why is it "never simple"? Why the "I love you" chocolates? Is it because ending an innocent human's life is wrong — something the baby will certainly never recover from and likely the mother, too?
Of course not. Here's Teen Vogue with the deceitful rationale (emphasis added):
"The worst part of all this isn’t the procedure itself (which by the way is completely safe as long as you have access to a good clinic). The worst part is how you’re treated afterwards.
...She will need a ride, she will need a hug, and she will need you — not because the act itself is so terrible, but because sometimes the world can be."
Killing the unborn: no big deal! Pro-lifers speaking out against the murder of the innocent unborn: moral evil. Got it?
The magazine then goes on to suggest teens give their post-abortion friends a pin of a fallopian tube flicking off pro-life people, a "GRL PWR" hat, a "We Won't Go Back" embroidered needlepoint and "period panties"—because "the future is female"...minus the ones we kill in the womb.
Pro-abortion propaganda is always disturbing, but this piece in particular, aimed at our youth in deceptive fashion, is about as low as it can get.
I wonder when Teen Vogue will do a piece on what to get your teenage friend who's living with depression and regret after Teen Vogue encouraged her to kill her innocent unborn child? Or when there wil be a piece from the perspective of those on the fatal end of such "empowering choices"?
