Abortion Planned Parenthood

IPPF tells us how to talk about abortion

Here is a 32-page booklet from the International Planned Parenthood Federation called “How to Talk About Abortion: A Guide to Rights-based Messaging.” I found the sections on what language to use and not to use and what images to use and not to use fascinating. They take euphemism to the next level.

This is also interesting:

“LANGUAGE NOTE In several places, this guide refers to ‘women’ who have abortions. Although the vast majority of abortions globally are provided to individuals who identify as ‘women’, IPPF acknowledges that other people who do not identify as ‘women’ (such as trans men/trans masculine people and non-binary people) can also experience pregnancy and abortion.”
