The coat hanger is supposed to be a symbol for abortion activists who oppose making abortions illegal because they falsely claim women will die from illegal abortions in massive numbers. Apparently, the coat hanger is just a symbol for a love affair with abortion.

coathangerThe D.C. Abortion Fund, a group that rises funds for women to have abortions but provides no money to support pregnant women who seek adoptions or carry their pregnancy to term, is giving out a coat hanger pendant to donors. The organization pays for women from Maryland, Virginia and Washington D.C. to have abortions.

National Review noticed the pendant as an award for abortion fund donors:

DCAF states that they hope to make “’choice’ a reality because we believe that a woman’s right to health care should not depend on her wallet.” They offer grants to low-income women on a confidential basis. The coat hanger seems to be a part of their logo, as it is also prominently featured on the main banner of their website.

This coat hanger pendant had previously been offered to donors in December 2009 as a sort of holiday special.

LifeNews blogger Ryan Bomberger recently took pro-abortion activists to task for misleading the public about illegal abortions.

But wait, Planned Parenthood declared back in 1959 that (gasp): “Abortion is no longer a dangerous procedure…90% of all illegal abortions are presently being done by physicians.” In fact, Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s own Medical Director, Dr. Mary Calderone, clarified her remarks by saying these illegal abortions were “being done well by physicians.”



Planned Parenthood apparently forgot their own 1959 presentation to the American Public Health Association where Dr. Calderone also opined: “In 1957, there were only 260 deaths in the whole country attributed to abortions of any kind…Call them what you will abortionists or anything else [I’ll call them seedy millionaire butchers], they are still physicians. They must do a pretty good job if the death rate is as low as it is.” 1957 people. Nineteen…fifty…seven.
