Last week it was Vogue showing us partial birth abortion chic with a photo of a post-pba mother modeling the latest in fashion smiling at her wanted live child.
This week it's Planned Parenthood of Hawaii's tacky "Choice is fashionable" fundraiser (click to enlarge):
If "choice" is indeed fashionable, they've chosen the wrong "haute" color.
Should be red.

Can it get any MORE depraved than this ?
You KNOW all the chic celebrities and their followers will be there.
I never would have thought that I'd hear "fashionable" and "abortion" in the same sentence!Posted by: Bethany at January 17, 2008 12:01 PM

Could be, Mike, but (in the past year, especially) plenty of them are choosing to continue pregnancies.
I never would have thought that I'd hear "fashionable" and "abortion" in the same sentence!
Bethany, we live in the age of crocs, of sandals and socks, low-rise jeans that show off the crack of one's butt, patterned hoodies, and of course BACKWARDS BASEBALL CAPS.
I'm Pro-Choice on abortion but not on wearing a cap backwards and giving our once-great country a bad name.Posted by: Doug at January 17, 2008 12:23 PM

Study finds big decline in abortions
U.S. yearly total now 1.2 million, down 25 percent from 1990 peak
By Stephaine Simon
Los Angeles Times
The most comprehensive study in years of abortion in America underscores a striking change in the landscape, with ever-fewer pregnant women choosing abortion and those who do increasingly opting to avoid surgical clinics.
The number of abortions has plunged to 1.2 million a year, down 25 percent since hitting a peak in 1990, according to a report released today — days before the 35th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court ruling that legalized abortion.
In the early 1980s, nearly one in three pregnant women chose abortion. The most recent data show that proportion is closer to one in five.
"That's a significant drop, and it's encouraging," said Randall O'Bannon, director of education and research for the anti-abortion group National Right to Life.
Women looking to end early pregnancies are gravitating to medication abortions, in which they take two pills under a doctor's supervision to induce miscarriage. This approach lets them avoid surgery — and the protesters who often picket clinics — and expel the embryo in the privacy of their homes.Posted by: Doug at January 17, 2008 12:24 PM
Taking two pills to induce miscarriage?? Call it what it is!! Abortion!
Praying that the numbers continue to drop.

Abortion doesn't even make the top ten list of issues Americans care about.
If you've been following the housing market (particularly starts) for the last year, the Dow for the last three months, or Bernake this morning, you'd pretty much pee your pants.
"...and expel the embryo" (read baby) "in the privacy of their homes"...where they flush it down the toilet....
oh, btw, the colours are great - it's known as the abortion palette, not just solid red, but also pinks, yellows, flesh colour etc.Posted by: Patricia at January 17, 2008 12:45 PM
If abortion isn't such a hot topic with Americans why are you here all the time?
The housing market? The housing market was on a huge never before seen upswing for the last 10 years. There is no way it could continue to climb.
The Dow? Again was at record highs over the last couple years.
Every market ebbs and flows.Posted by: Sandy at January 17, 2008 12:56 PM
"If abortion isn't such a hot topic with Americans why are you here all the time?"
keep you guys too busy debating us to actually accomplish anything.
I'm kidding of course.
Why is it that this organization can post record profits into the hundreds of millions and still glom after peoples' money.
Also, as far as their maketing campaign, why do they use the slogan "choice is fashionable" when they claim to be trying to cut the abortion rate.
How pathetic and contradictory.
What is fashionable about abortion? Are they giving away designer broaches for women to wear proudly after their abortions with a dead fetus motif in jewels?
Belt buckles that say "don't mess with me, I just killed my baby"
Rose colored sunglasses with the "PP" logo on the side?
Gold necklaces that you can attach a charm for every abortion you have? How about a charms with the birthstones of the month your baby would have been born???
That would be O' So Shiek!!!
Auction items??? I can only imagine what the auction items would include.
BOGO gift certificates?

"..this year they hope to top $100,00"
With all the media coverage (both good and bad) about PP in Denver and Aurora...I highly doubt it!
They can't even drum up enough support to get Pro-abort people to come and face us pro-lifers for free...let alone a fundraiser.
this is all about making abortion more acceptable and less stigmatized.
PC'ers are feeling slightly stung these days over the way recent movies have treated pregnancy, starlets such as Jamie Lynn Spears deciding to do the right thing and not abort (gasp) and the conference in San Fran in which the effects of abortion on men were explored and which saw a sizeable number of men tell their abortion stories.
Medication induced abortions are not as simplistic as you think. They can involve massive bleeding, extreme pain, and a minimum of two doctor office visits. This can be dangerous and terrifying enough for a mature woman, imagine the minor who has not informed her parents. The unborn baby may be expelled in the "privacy" of her home or it may be expelled unexpectedly when the woman is riding in her car.
Also, the bleeding and pain can mask symptoms of such life threatening conditions as ectopic pregnancy and infection.
I know of PC doctors who wouldn't touch this with a 10 foot pole because of the legal ramifications and the extra staff and hours that would be required to monitor these patients, not to mention the fact the patient would may well have to make more than two visits. Who needs it?
I cannot understand why any woman at all would find this method preferable over a surgical abortion.Posted by: Mary at January 17, 2008 2:16 PM
Mary - because it's private
the woman is not thinking of the complications or doesn't know about the dangers
she just wants to hide the evidence of sex
or keep her partnerPosted by: Patricia at January 17, 2008 2:19 PM

You know, Midnite..this is a PL site..so abortion/life issues are the main news topics covered here. You wouldn't go on a breast cancer awareness website and find much about the war or terrorism EITHER. Duh.
Maybe you could comment on the ACTUAL story other than trying to deflect from it.Posted by: Elizabeth at January 17, 2008 2:23 PM
That may be, but there won't be much privacy if she ends up in the hospital or returning to the clinic time and again.
Women have been deceived into thinking this is little more than taking an aspirin tablet and presto-chango, you are no longer pregnant. It can in fact be a long drawn out complicated procedure that can be very traumatizing.
Mary, I agree. But unfortunately, a woman under siege by her partner, or distraught over a pregnancy doesn't reason too well.Posted by: Patricia at January 17, 2008 2:42 PM
Several months ago I read an article in a woman's magazine written by a PC woman who chose to go with the medical induced abortion method.
She was horrified and so sick she could not believe it. I believe she sufferred long term affects of this method. No one ever told her what to expect.
I can't remember the whole story, but basically it profiled how dangerous this method is for women. Not to mention like you stated, they can deliver at anytime, anywhere.
How private is that?Posted by: Sandy at January 17, 2008 3:07 PM
If PP's "choice" is so chic, why doesn't this invitation have a photo of the "choice" they promote most vigorously? There are plenty of images they could use available at http://www.cbrinfo.org/Resources/pictures.html
Of course, they may not be able to get permission from CBR to use them, but hey- since when did they ever let a little thing like the wishes of the rightful owner to get between them and anything else they wanted...such as the lives of innocent children.
Of course, why would they need CBR images when they grind out hundreds of what those images depict daily?
It boggles the mind that proaborts still try to co-opt the term "choice" to legitimize the deliberate, premeditated slaughter of an innocent human being. The original abortion-rights slogans from the early '70s, "Freedom of choice" and "Women must have control over their own bodies", which remain virtual articles of faith and rallying cries of the pro-death movement to this day, were never anything but window dressing to begin with; the man who helped invent them said so himself after a 180% turn on his position on abortion made a comparatively honest man out of him.
"I remember laughing when we made those slogans up," recalls Bernard Nathanson, M.D., co-founder of pro-abortion vanguard group NARAL, reminiscing about the early days of the abortion-rights movement in the late '60s and early '70s. "We were looking for some sexy, catchy slogans to capture public opinion. They were very cynical slogans then, just as all of these slogans today are very, very cynical."
How cynical? Much more cynical than any professing proabort I've ever met would care to admit. Consider:
- Of the millions of Americans registered to vote in 1973, exactly 9 of them were allowed to vote on Roe v. Wade...AND ALL OF THEM WERE MEN!
None of them could abort or be aborted. Why the act of judicial fiat? Because the "champions of choice" did not want real Americans to make a real choice in the matter.
- The fact that women so very rarely get pregnant on purpose so that they can get abortions really should be one of the first clues here. Instead, induced abortion is the lynch pin on which they fall back when betrayed by the false sense of immunity, they often get from using artificial birth control.
- Of the millions of pre-born Americans slaughtered by legalized, induced abortion since 1973, none of them has ever had his/her choice taken into consideration. Nathanson made a film showing a first-trimester baby in the process of being aborted which showed the baby resisting the invasion of his prenatal home by violence, and screaming, hence, the title of the film, "The Silent Scream". The abortionist who did that abortion vowed, upon seeing the film, that he would never perform another one. Every abortion is deliberate murder, and murder is the ultimate imposition of the will of the murderer upon someone else.
- The elements of deception, ignorance, desperation, coercion/manipulation, and fear at work in at least most child-killing decisions are far too many to make is possible for any sane person to connect the concepts of "free choice" and "induced abortion" with a straight face and a clear conscience. Frederica Matthewes-Green pointed out years ago that women don't want or choose abortions like they choose ice cream cones or Porsches, but more like entrapped animals "choose" to gnaw off limbs. Such a short-sighted, desperate, self-destructive act hardly qualifies as a free choice; and even Planned Parenthood admitted this when Matthewes-Green's
original statement appeared as the "Quote of the month" on the front page of one of their newletters.
- Planned Parenthood, the National Abortion Federation & allies have fought, tooth and nail, against informed consent laws in every state where such legislation has been sponsored, introduced, and debated. Why, unless it is to prevent women from making an informed (gasp!) choice?
- The abortion industry’s deathscorts, barbed wire, bubble zones, refusal to allow young mothers to see their babies (or lack thereof) on ultrasound, suppression of vital information on abortion risks, consent/liability release forms, etc., ad nauseam, are all tactics to intimidate their quarry, “clients,” into the choice that best serves their bank account and social agenda, rather than the best interests of the mother and child whose lives are at stake. They are all used to paint the façade/buttress the LIE that they are the “safety zone,” and prolifers are the “threat to women.” This despite the fact that thousands of pregnant women have been injured, maimed, incapacitated, and killed INSIDE of LEGAL abortion chambers, while fewer than 10 have been injured/harmed OUTSIDE of them over the past 32 years.

For these women, the abortion "choice" ended all other choices, as it did for their babies.
(Those dated prior to 1973 were due to abortions done in states where it was already legal to murder a preborn baby; and further information documenting and promoting a more balanced perspective on these matters than the abortion cartel will ever admit to is available at abortionviolence.com.)
- Chinese women could offer further elucidation about the “right to ‘reproductive choice’”. Their perspective would, no doubt, be considered by some an unpalatable and politically incorrect one, but a much more honest one than the one conveyed by prodeath propaganda.
China is the only country in the world, at present, where the draconian “one child per couple” policy, brutal in itself, is more brutally enforced by forced abortion, forced sterilization, and severe punishment for resistance. It is also the only country in the world where the suicide rate is higher among women than among men. Coincidence? Hardly. Women are physiologically hard-wired for motherhood; and bereaved of that capacity, lose much of a woman’s natural reason to be, hence they often lose the will to live. Don’t let the attitude, “Oh, well, that’s just China” - a horrific, genocidally racist view in itself- belittle the matter by distance. Ted Turner, among PP (aka Planned Parenthood or Population Police; it's the same thing) advocates a two-child-per- couple limit imposed in the U.S., and elsewhere, as per the New World Order’s “sustainable development” population control agenda.
- The more live people there are to exercise their volition (in ways other than murdering and maiming their fellow human beings), the more choices will be made! Living people are so much more actively volitional than dead ones (!!!). Abortion is murder, and murder is the ultimate negation of choice for its victim(s).
- It's egregiously cynical and deceptive to use the language of "rights" and "choice" to countenance the ultimate wrong and negation of legitimate choice. But then, it was never about legitimate choice to begin with. "Choice" in this context was always window dressing, a mere smokescreen to cover the real intent of legalized abortion: granting the medical profession, with the support of the government, the freedom to KILL the innocent, based on a "quality of life" search-and-destroy anti-ethic. Can anybody say, "Dr. Mengele"?
Here's hoping there's a pro-life picketing contingency in Hawaii that surrounds this bloodfest like a wall of fire; if there is, we certainly wish them every blessing. If there isn't, the Hawaiians have only themselves to thank for any curses that come their way.
As for the pro-deathers that seem hell-bent on detracting from and minimizing the bloodbath they support with posts claiming that it's not that big an issue...well, not to you, not now. But it is to the victims. And victims always matter to civilized, just people. Wake up and grow up.Posted by: jtm at January 17, 2008 3:16 PM
Great post jtm!
The interesting thing is that while women have championed the right to abort, it is the female sex that is being anihilated in many parts of the world through sex-selection abortion. The revolution comes back to eat us!
Yes, Patricia! Yet the sex-selection female infanticide of "Reproductive choice" has never raised the interest, let alone the ire, of the so-called "feminists".
Sometime around 1973, one man tried to bring the feminists to their senses by FACETIOUSLY advocating that men who found their wives inconvenient, tiresome, or handicapped be allowed to kill them legally. Seems that this came full circle with the 2005 murder of Terri Schiavo and, for the most part, the feminists who so loudly decried the male chauvinism flaunted by Michael Schiavo's determination to have Terri put to death as cruelly, unjustly, and legally as the female babies slaughtered in utero by induced abortion were silent. Not interested. Oh, there were some gathered outside Woodside Hospice as she lay dying for the last time protesting her murder, but you could count them on the fingers of one hand and have at least one finger left. So the "feminist" "reproductive rights" revolution is coming up to bite us in the butt in more ways than one.Posted by: jtm at January 17, 2008 3:48 PM
A classic case of "be very careful what you wish for, you just might get it".
Or the ancient saying, "when the gods want to punish humans, they answer their prayers".Posted by: Mary at January 17, 2008 4:23 PM
I found it interesting that one of the protesters at the nursing home where Terri died described herself as a "liberal Democrat agnostic lesbian". So much for this being a religious or political issue.
She was also disabled and confined to a wheelchair. As an activist for the disabled she greatly feared for herself and other disabled people as well.
The woman on the poster has no face. Which is how PP evidently sees women -- as faceless bodies to process, albeit in a chic and fashionable way.
See their faces and you see their tears and then it gets harder to treat them like so much grist for the abortion mill.Posted by: Christina at January 17, 2008 5:53 PM
Any talk of PP makes me sick.
They are post modern Stalinistas.Posted by: HisMan at January 17, 2008 10:49 PM
So right, Christina.
They have already replaced abortion with "choice", and now it is "fashionable." As someone else said above, if you are trying to reduce abortions, why make it fashionable?
Why pink? For all of the dead baby girls?Posted by: prettyinpink at January 17, 2008 11:44 PM
Pip, I completely agree with you. Good post.Posted by: Bethany at January 18, 2008 8:13 AM
Her right arm below the shoulder is missing, too...Posted by: Anonymous2 at January 19, 2008 3:10 PM
Just like little Ana Rosa Rodriquez's right arm. Great observation A2Posted by: Mary at January 19, 2008 3:33 PM
Her right arm is bent at the elbow and has a hand on the end of it.Posted by: FetusFascist at January 19, 2008 4:24 PM
Not that I can see. Anyway, the same can't be said for Ana Rosa.Posted by: Mary at January 19, 2008 4:48 PM
That's her LEFT arm that's holding the drink..the right one seems to be missing.Posted by: Elizabeth at January 19, 2008 6:43 PM
Thanks Elizabeth, I'm glad I'm not the only one who doesn't see a right arm.Posted by: Mary at January 19, 2008 8:39 PM
The right elbow is sitting like it's perched on the back of a couch. The arm ends in a hand.Posted by: FetusFascist at January 20, 2008 9:39 AM
If you say so. It must be my computer because try as I might I cannot see it.Posted by: Mary at January 20, 2008 9:44 AM
Laura, I think you may be seeing things.Posted by: Bethany at January 20, 2008 1:58 PM
That makes three of us that don't see the right arm. What a relief!Posted by: Mary at January 20, 2008 6:13 PM
It's not there, Mary. I even adjusted the contrast in photoshop to see if there was a way I might have missed it. But nope. Not there.Posted by: Bethany at January 20, 2008 7:07 PM
It's like the woman is resting against her arm behind her back, as against a wall, or just has it behind her back, the distance from the shoulder to elbow appearing foreshortened as the elbow is farther from the viewer than the shoulder.Posted by: Doug at January 28, 2008 3:37 PM
