Ms. magazine has initiated an on-line and print campaign inviting women to celebrate the murder of their unborn children by surgical abortion. The campaign is a protest against the South Dakota abortion ban.
“I Had an Abortion” is the headline now appearing on Ms. magazine’s web site. Abortion activism is nothing new to the magazine: “I Had an Abortion” was also the headline for a petition that appeared in the 1972 debut edition, when 53 women admitted that they had procured abortions, “despite state laws redering (sic) the procedure illegal,” the web site declares.
“Thirty-three years after Roe, Ms. created a new petition so that women can speak out about abortion in even larger numbers,” the web site proclaims. The petition asserts as “absurd” that a state could ban the killing of the unborn. The South Dakota ban has been stayed pending a November plebiscite. Ms. Magazine also bemoans that 17 states have introduced trigger laws, or pre-Roe bans to ban abortion in the event that the U.S. Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade.
