Posted on 08/23/2019 4:33:26 PM PDT by Morgana
Republican politics are returning America to a past where only the wealthy have access to safe, legal abortion, bemoaned lefty rag Vanity Fair in an article on Wednesday highlighting the pricey abortion concierge services available to the rich.
Author Caitlin Moscatello touted VIP abortions at private clinics and MedSpas that have ritzy waiting rooms with glass chandeliers for those who want care thats quick, private, and exclusive. Often for celebrities, public figures, and the wealthy or their partners, these abortion spas offer a la carte menu upgrade options for purchase, with one Ultimate VIP abortion package costing $10,000 for benefits including luxury car service, private use of the entire office, and a plush recovery room.
Moscatello is of two minds about VIP abortions. She likes the fact that concierge services for abortion puts what is too often seen as a taboo area of medicine rightfully in the mainstream. On the other hand, the stark contrast between whats available to wealthy women versus low-income women can be unnerving. Even worse, conservative women with means are able to circumvent a system they very well may have put in place with their vote.
In tweeting out her article, titled Is This the Trumpian Future of Abortion in America?, Moscatello commented, Grateful for abortion providers, and concierge services are available in other areas of medicine. It is troubling though, how wealthy women in conservative states can potentially vote one way, then pay to have the red carpet rolled out for them elsewhere.
To emphasize this, Moscatello wrote of the owner of Eastside Gynecology in New York City, which commits 4,200 abortions a year, receiving a call from a woman from Georgia and felt the need to remark, Its impossible to know her political views (the office didnt ask), but its also impossible not to wonder if shes among the 70% of white women who cast their ballots for Kemp over pro-choice candidate Stacey Abrams. Ah, yes, conservative white women get the blame again!
And whats a good bashing of Republican women without a healthy dose of hypocrisy added on top? Moscatello reported that Dr. Payman Joseph (yes, thats really the abortionists name) of My Choice Medical Center in Los Angeles claimed, During the 2016 election cycle, he said a patient who was a visible figure in the Republican Party cried and told him, Nobody can know.
Now, the two-tiered system that existed before Roe is beginning to take shape again, as conservative state lawmakers chip away at abortion access, Moscatello warned, depicting a world before 1973 where wealthy women could get abortions but low-income women or women without their own means who needed to keep their pregnancies private often resorted to risky self-inductions. Wire hangers. Toxic substances. Throwing themselves down staircases.
This is why pro-life laws must be stopped, she said, If conservative lawmakers continue to get their way, we might be looking at a future that more closely resembles the pastone in which abortion care is more starkly stratified than ever, with VIP treatment on one end, and dangerous self-induction, unlicensed procedures, or even death, on the other. And it's all the fault of those evil rich white conservative women.
>>abortion care is more starkly stratified than ever, with VIP treatment on one end, and dangerous self-induction, unlicensed procedures, or even death, on the other.
As if they gave a DAMN about botched legal abortions or the horror show that was Gossnell.
So, abortion itself isnt DARK?? Being without available abortion IS dark???
Up is down.
Right is left.
Black is white.
All in Leftist land.
What is ‘darker’ than abortion itself?
I dream of a time when morality will reign and women realize how precious their charge is.
You can hang all the gold filigree on it, you can adorn it with jewels, you can sing its praises with professional choirs... but abortion will always be a filthy business with degraded practitioners.
Only for the attractive ones

I know a guy who has noticed things being like that....
Yes. And we are blessed to have him.
You’re gonna make Nully’s head swell!
That will require more tinfoil!!
These are the same people who want to lower the standards of who can perform abortions and are against even minimal sanitary standards for abortion mills.
I buy it by the rail car full...
The day will come when people read about abortion with the same disgust we feel about drawing and quartering or beheadings.
Imagine an America where women aren’t allowed to legally have their unborn children murdered. What a nightmare. /sarc
Focus on two things with this issue... the fact that it is legal in this country to terminate up to the day of birth and also sex selection abortions. Terminating full term children is reprehensible to anyone who has a soul. Terminating ‘girl’ children is reprehensible to a majority of the public. However this is exactly what some cultural groups are doing. Get the opponents to own that they are for killing full term babies and baby girls! MAKE THEM OWN IT! That is what they are for. They believe they are on the right side of history. Let them wear it with a badge of honor to the polls. When they are in debates pounce on them with their held “pro-choice” position.
