While the right to privacy may have been the key to securing abortion rights in Roe v. Wade, some advocates of the controversial procedure today want to walk around with a sign, t-shirt to be exact, broadcasting their reproductive decisions.
In 2004, abortion advocate and author Jennifer Baumgardner launched the I Had an Abortion project to encourage women and men to come out about their procedures. The campaign featured shirts that read I Had an Abortion, a book, photo exhibit, and documentary film featuring 10 women including feminist Gloria Steinem describe their abortion experiences spanning seven decades.
In preparation of an upcoming panel discussion and book signing featuring Baumgardner at the University of North Carolina Wilmington, controversy ensued when I Had an Abortion shirts began to pop up around campus. WWAY reports that the panel was held Monday by the Womens Studies Department and LGBTQIA Resource Office, where the controversial shirts were sold for $15 each at the event.

Just exercising their “privacy rights”.
(Apparently, they belong to the “irony-impaired generation”.)
WECT reports that the shirts caused a protest and other students rallied with their own shirts, saying things like I havent killed a baby.
Look on the bright side... these are an open billboard for those wanting to avoid this type of sad, pathetic females.
When you're utterly amoral you have no use for 50's type things like shame.
They are proud of their sacrifice to The Lilith, their baby-eating Goddess.
Wonder how long it took for the murderesses to be offended.
Maybe they should say “I Am An Abortion”.
What does that stand for?
If you were to distribute a T-shirt that said, “I drive my kid around without a seat belt,” you would be denounced nationally by the media and popular culture. However when you boast that you killed your child before they had a chance to ride in a car, it becomes a novelty — one more tool for thoughtful political discourse. How sad.
Here’s a t-shirt idea.
“A woman needs an abortion like a fish needs a bicycle.”
I attended a Crisis Pregnancy Center dinner celebrating 30th year of pro life centers in AZ - Our Rep Trent Franks was there and so were over 30 families of those who personally came into the center for counseling. We had a mother and her 3 year old daughter at our table along with a couple and their 4 month old son, both of whom are alive today because of CPC ministries. The speaker said “6 million Jews were anhililated in less than 10 years during WWII - over 54 million babies have been murded in less than 40 years since Roe v Wade passed in 1973. (9 Holocausts over!!!)
do you really really want to know??
“I dodged an abortion” might make an interesting t-shirt.

My mom skipped the abortion.
I wonder what would happen if some women were to start wearing shirts that say "I regret my abortion--CHOOSE LIFE"? I would think such a message might penetrate the Liberal Mind Fog which infests much of the populace, and I think reactions to that message might prompt abortion promoters to show themselves as who they really are, sufficiently clearly that even those infested by Liberal Mind Fog would be able to see it.
After all, abortion promoters could not allow such a message to go unchallenged, lest people who had abortions, and were ashamed of them, come to realize that wearing such a shirt might help atone for their past. It would thus be absolutely imperative that such people be attacked sufficiently viciously to discourage others from following suit. But how to attack them? The left would try to attack them with some contradictory arguments, but even Liberal Mind Fog wouldn't hide the contradictions, nor would it hide the hatred underlying the leftists' attacks.
I wonder if “daddy’s little princess” would wear one of these home to see mom and dad.
