Abortion without Euphemism

The video above shows the American Sign Language symbol for abortion. In a LifeSiteNews story about the symbol a couple of commenters made these excellent points:

"I think the 'brutally honest' perception stems from the fact that, as a visual language, ASL is relatively immune to efforts to infuse it with 'political correctness' as the spoken and written English language have so thoroughly been."

"This is so true! ASL doesn't have euphemisms. It's insane, I know: a language that prioritizes communication. Hard to imagine!"
