Women's March: Stop Using Coat Hanger Imagery — It Reinforces 'Right-Wing Talking Points' That Home Abortions Are Dangerous

The Women’s March is urging people who attend their protests to stop using coat hanger imagery because they “don’t want to accidentally reenforce right-wing talking points that self-managed abortions are dangerous, scary and harmful.”

The organization also told women to stop wearing Handmaid’s Tale costumes because it believes that they are only relevant to white women.

On Saturday, the organization held an “abortion rights” protest in Washington, DC.

“We don’t use coat hangers or coat hanger imagery because we don’t want to accidentally reenforce right-wing talking points that self-managed abortions are dangerous, scary and harmful,” the organization tweeted.

Thousands of women have died attempting coat hanger abortions, so it is unclear why a feminist organization would want to place women in jeopardy by attempting to minimize the dangers of such procedures.

“Women who have unsafe abortions are at risk of serious medical problems, including incomplete abortion, hemorrhage (heavy bleeding), infection, uterine perforation (caused when the uterus is pierced by a sharp object), and damage to the genital tract and internal organs (by inserting dangerous objects such as sticks, knitting needles, or broken glass into the vagina or anus). Each year around 7 million women are admitted to hospitals for complications of unsafe abortion and between 4.7% – 13.2% of maternal deaths can be attributed to unsafe abortion,” according to the book Our Bodies, Ourselves.

The above excerpt was written by leftist feminists. These are not “right-wing” talking points by any reasonable measure.

“Handmaid’s Tale imagery has proliferated, primarily by white women, in recent years. This message erases the fact that Black, undocumented, incarcerated, poor, & disabled women have always had their reproduction controlled in America. It’s not some dystopian future or past,” they continued.

Handmaid’s Tale references and costumes have been a widely used uniform at Women’s March events in the past.

Several women did not get the memo, or they did not care, because several were still spotted at the protest, according to a report from the Post Millennial.

    Dumb. I wish the majority of modern women would be better people than the overbearing, demanding default dem slut-trash that they almost invariably choose to be, but c’est la vie.

    As for abortion, I’ll leave that between them and God. It’s vile business, and I’ve taken permanent steps to ensure that I’m never thrust into that debate personally, but you do you chicks… We’re never dating though, just fyi.

    Are these people literally retarded? If they want abortions whenever they want, then I want IQ tests and basic governmental framework tests for voting rights.

    You can still have an abortion- if you do it in a timely manner (exceptions : instances of rape, incest ,or likelihood of maternal death due to existing disease) . Like before 12 weeks. At 21 weeks 2 days and at the weight of 12 ounces, Richard, son of Beth Hutchinson survived premature birth…look it up (one even smaller- size of a small apple 212 grams and 13 months in NICU lived, Baby Yu Xuan, in ironically China). At about 4- 5 months, there are only 2 major barriers to survival .They have everything we have except- lung maturity and body weight oh,… and a loving mother that cares more about THEM than herself. Isn’t it worth a couple of months to of your time to give them life for OTHER people that will love them for the rest of theirs????? My brother AND my best friend were both adopted children. Please, don’t tell me these are the same people SCREAMING about the environment. The lack of empathy, disregard of science, and leaps of illogic would kill me.
