“What’s an Abortion, Anyway?” begins a new children’s book by abortion activists Carly Manes and an illustrator who goes by the name Emulsify.
But it never actually answers the question. Instead, the book, intended for young children, indoctrinates young minds with radical pro-abortion rhetoric that attempts to normalize the killing of unborn babies for any reason without limits.
“Some people have abortions because they can’t take care of a new baby right now,” the book states, above an illustration of a mother holding a young child. Others because their “doctors say pregnancy could make them sick,” it continues next to the image of a smiling doctor.
“No matter the reason, everyone should be able to make this decision for themselves,” it states.
The book has not been released yet, but the authors’ intentions and the preview pages make it clear that its purpose is not to explain to children what an abortion is. Quite the opposite.
The creators say their goal is to create a society where “abortion is normalized as another outcome of pregnancy, just like miscarriage and birth.” This disguises the truth from children about the violence and injustice of abortion. An abortion — unlike birth or miscarriage – intentionally and unnecessarily kills a unique living human being, a child in the womb who is a lot like them, only smaller.

Instead, the creators make vague boasts about basing their book on “medically accurate” resources.
“Parents, caretakers and providers need and deserve a non-judgmental, gender-inclusive, and medically-accurate resource to use in discussions with children about abortion,” the website for the book states.
According to the blog Caldron Pool, the authors also boast that their new book is the only one specifically written for children under the age of 13 that uses the word “abortion.”
Manes describes herself as a “white, queer, Jewish” abortion doula from New York. She proudly states that she has helped with more than 2,000 abortions in the past six years. Emulsify, or “M,” identifies as a “brown genderqueer cultural worker and full-spectrum doula.”
They created the book through a fund on Kickstarter that raised $23,492 from 546 donors, according to Caldron Pool. They plan to donate 300 copies of the book to children’s libraries across the U.S. “next to all the books about pregnancy.”
African pro-life leader Obianuju Ekeocha, founder of Culture of Life Africa, reacted with horror at the evil being pushed on young children through the new book.
“Seriously, this is evil. Protect the children,” she wrote Monday on Twitter.
Meanwhile, conservative podcast host Allie Beth Stuckey urged people to pray that the book would have the opposite effect of what its authors intend.
“They never say baby or fetus or even ‘clump of cells.’ They just say ‘pregnancy.’ But kids are curious. They ask questions. ‘What’s a pregnancy? … I thought you said it was a baby in your belly? What happens to it in an abortion?” Stuckey responded.
“Let’s pray God uses this book and the conversations that will inevitably happen because of it to soften people’s hearts and to change their minds about abortion. What Satan means for evil, God can always use for good,” she said.
