A video is making the rounds on the Internet today that shows the sign language for the word abortion. In the video, a woman demonstrates the sign that shows her cradling a baby at first and then throwing the baby out with her hand.

Monte Harms of Stand for Life posted the video on his web site today and noted: “Look at what “abortion” is in the American Sign Language Dictionary.”

“Wow, words are not necessary,her gestures are so close to the terrifying truth.”

“Exactly what abortion is. Well defined by the American sign language dictionary. As defined by the 2013 online Webster dictionary: the termination of a pregnancy after, accompanied by, resulting in, or closely followed by the death of the embryo or fetus. I think the ASL definition is far more on point.”

“Where words fail us all too often, like graphic signs, “signing” in this case communicates the graphic truth in a uniquely horrific yet memorable way.”
