Abortion Clinic Appeals to the Rich: Do You Want a Latte With That Abortion Pill?

A new abortion clinic in Washington, D.C. is trying to appeal to the rich to entice them into going to its “spa-like” abortion clinic to terminate the life of their unborn child.

As LifeNews previously reported, the facility, CaraFem, which opened this Spring, will offer hot tea and comfy robes. The “clinic” will also feature wood floors, plush upholstery and resemble a high-end salon or spa.

Abortion biz spokeswoman Melissa Grant explained, “It is important for us to present an upgraded, almost spa-like feel.” She proclaims that she wanted to “de-medicalize” the procedure.

Earlier this year, Carafem launched an ad campaign that attempts to destigmatize abortion. Their 30-second video ad features three women who are trying to avoid using the word “abortion” when another woman interrupts their conversation and boldly says, “wait a minute, you guys are talking about abortion.” The video ends with Carafem’s motto, “Abortion. Yeah, we do that.”

CaraFem president, Christopher Purdy, said, “We don’t want to talk in hushed tones. We use the A-word.” He added, “It’s fresh, it’s modern, it’s clean, it’s caring. That’s the brand we’re trying to create.” Planned Parenthood, of course, praised the new approach. Eric Ferrero, a spokesman for the abortion giant, said, “We still do a lot of work with people who are less supportive of abortion, and one way we need to communicate is in a more empathetic framework that kind of says, ‘Look, these are really complicated personal issues.”

Responding to the pitch to high-end abortion customers, the pregnancy center ministry CareNet said the abortion clinic is just disguising abortion with hot tea and a good smell but that women won’t get any real compassion or support.

Women are not easily duped, but deluxe abortion clinic Carafem treats women as if they can be deceived with ease. While Care Net affiliate pregnancy centers give women compassion and hope, this abortion clinic in Maryland uses tea and a spa to disguises itself,” it said. “You end a pregnancy, you end a life. No amount of herbal tea can change that.”

The group issued a video with a longer response to Carafem:
