Planned Parenthood is selling an "I Had An Abortion" t-shirt on their website.
Bad move, I think. The point, says the t-shirt's designer, is to bring abortion out of the shame closet and state it as being a safe, legal medical procedure.
But the very bluntness of its wording gives anti-abortion voices the opportunity to label it as callousness. (And considerably stronger words.)
Let me propose an alternative, somewhat longer but less attackable, t-shirt message:
[ ] safe legal abortions
[ ] dangerous illegal abortions
