WASHINGTON, August 19, 2003 ( – A coalition of abortionists in the US has adopted and twisted the language and methods of counsellors in post-abortion syndrome in order to boost flagging support and sales in their killing business. The September issue of Glamour magazine, has published a long article describing the “new approach” to abortion marketing.  In an attempt to depict the warm and friendly face of abortion, a group of abortion facilities calling itself the “November Gang,” has added a component to their pre- and post-abortion “counselling” sessions that echoes the language and practices of movements like Project Rachel, even invoking a bizarre form of “baptism” that can be performed over a steel pan containing the pulverized remains of a woman’s child. Mothers, attempting to steel themselves to their intention to kill their children, are encouraged to talk about their feelings of guilt, write notes to their dead children about the “empowerment” their abortion has given them and include the fathers in the “grieving process.”  November Gang abortionists admit that the abortion movement’s exclusive emphasis on the rights and “choice” rhetoric has denied the emotional impact of abortion on women. One abortionist at the Northland Family Planning Center in Detroit said that when a woman identifies an abortion with the murder of an innocent person, “I can’t feel good about the work I do and neither can the staff.” One question asked on the pre-counselling questionnaire at November Gang facilities asks, “Can you see abortion as a loving act toward your children and yourself?”  One woman is quoted after her abortion as saying, “I felt I knew the being I was carrying. I felt he was my son. I even called him Ernesto. And Ernesto was my reminder that my life was significant and that having an abortion was putting my life first. I know it was really about me.”  Hilary White, spokesman for Campaign Life Catholic said, “This is the most diabolical twist to the abortion industry so far. To use and deform the conscience, even invoking God’s forgiveness for un-repented acts of murder, in order to sell their murderous service is a horrific violation of the women who go to them in trust. It should be a wake-up call to pro-lifers to know how our own work in aiding women emotionally scarred by abortion is being used.”
