Women who have had abortions are offered a handmade ceramic planter with a small plant and an accompanying hand-written note of support to promote both emotional and physical healing and to extend a gesture of respect and love.
Well isn't that special!? A parting gift. And a "hand-written note" so you don't feel like just a modern, murdering, cold-hearted, cruel and callous bitch. I imagine the note to read as follows:
Dear Modern Woman,
You are special in Mother Earth's eyes! By showing that embryo (that was growing like a tumor inside you) the business end of a cold, sharp, sterile, stainless steel surgical scalpel - you have successfully eliminated a potential future enemy of Mother Earth!
By "choosing" to put your ankles in the stirrups and allowing your unwanted mass of cells to be eviscerated, you can sleep well tonight (after a night of booze, drugs and fornicating without repercussion or responsibility. Ain't it just grand being a progressive?) knowing the world will move on with one less polluter contributing to Global Warming.
So please accept this plant as a parting gift for a job well done! We've taken the liberty to fertilize the soil for "this little guy" with the "bits and pieces" from your procedure today. Nevermind that bloody toe :) Just don't forget to water!
P4P (Plants for Patients)
Yes, by all means - water with the tears of what should have been.
BLOG EXTRA! (Re-Post Alert) The following is just a teaser, but I highly recommend you click the link and enjoy the entire post. I changed the date of this post to 2013 at this point last year so it would appear first in the newsfeed, but I originally wrote this many years ago. I only mention this to point out the similarity between the potted plant parting gift and the commemorative snow globe - and how, ONCE AGAIN, I illustrate why I am a man before his time!
