Is that for real? It's horrific in its accuracy....

Look up the American Sign Language word for abortion. It is in fact true. So sad, but a realistic portrayal. Sorry.


termination of pregnancy


Gloss: REMOVAL/REMOVED. In this standalone video, it's a compound word, however in the context of sentences, it's usually signed a single sign "removal/removed".

This video has been viral at times. To explain an etymological origin of this signed word (one of a few variations), the latter part of the sign originated from the ASL sign "removal" or "to remove". No worse than the English term "abortion".
