Teen Vogue’s Pro-Abortion Assault on Underage Girls

By Stephen Herreid Published on February 13, 2017

Teen Vogue, a magazine aimed at girls as young as 11 but run by agenda-driven adults, has published a column entitled “What to Get a Friend Post-Abortion.” Written by feminist Whitney Bell, the article makes light of abortion, condemns any suggestion of other options, and even recommends teens volunteer at local abortion clinics “to make it easier” for their friends who want to abort.

This outrageous column is a reminder that pro-abortion activists aren’t just after unborn babies. They’re after innocent young girls as well. And it’s up to the pro-life movement to protect both.

“So your friend is about to have an abortion,” Whitney Bell begins in her piece at Teen Vogue. “Of course you want to be there for her, but you don’t know how.” Bell then assures readers that the “worst part” about abortion isn’t “the procedure,” but “how you’re treated afterwards” due to a “false stigma.”

Bell goes on to tell teens that their friends seeking to procure abortions “will need a ride” to an abortion clinic, and then offers a list of recommended abortion-themed gifts that teens can give to a post-abortive “bestie,” to “put a smile on her face.”

She recommends a special brand of women’s underwear. Teens can “rock em [sic] for post-abortion woes, especially because there will be blood. … If the future is female then welcome to it,” she jokes “because this is the future of menstruation.”

Bell writes that she herself had an abortion, and recommends a book of poetry that inspired her to “come forward” about it, which might likewise help a post-abortive teen “feel a little a little [sic] more empowered.”

Bell also suggests a uniquely crafted handmade heating pad, since “you can expect almost 3 solid days of pain” after some abortions. “Likely worse than any period symptoms you’ve ever experienced. … Huzzahhhhh! [sic]” The maker of these heating pads also produces “a mustached ‘MAN-struation’ version for our trans-friends as well,” she adds.

Another suggested gift is an “F*** U-tero” pin, designed to look like a female reproductive system making an obscene gesture, “so that when some rude jerk asks if you regret your choice … you won’t need to say a word.” Bell suggests teens buy extra pins, “because the proceeds benefit Planned Parenthood, and they need all the support we can give em [sic].”

Bell also encourages Teen Vogue readers to volunteer at an abortion clinic, to “make it a little easier for the next girl” who wants to procure an abortion.

We Can’t Just Protect the Preborn, We Must Protect Teen Girls From Abusive Propaganda

According to its own surveys, Teen Vogue’s readership is 80 percent female, with a “median age” of 18. But the magazine clearly targets girls much younger than that — including preteens. A recently published “21 under 21” article featured two 15-year-olds, two 13-year-olds and three 11-year-olds. Girls as young as these are innocents whom adults have a duty to protect.

By contrast, Whitney Bell is a 27-year-old political activist who has made a name for herself with X-rated “art” and public abortion advocacy, and Teen Vogue’s grownup managers are worldly businesspeople who care so little about the welfare of children that they gave such a person access to kids.

Pro-abortion activists like the directors of Teen Vogue don’t care about women’s access to healthcare nearly as much as they care about the abortion industry’s access to children.

Think of it. Teen Vogue is unashamed of the fact that thanks to their clever marketing and editorial discretion, 11-year-old girls will discover the work of Whitney Bell, the creator of an “art exhibit” entirely comprised of photographs of (mostly middle-aged) men’s genitalia. This isn’t secret — it’s Bell’s main claim to fame, with articles on the pornographic “artwork” making up the bulk of search results if you look her up online.

Her other notable work includes an expletive-filled column at Elle Magazine in which she describes in grizzly detail her own abortion, which she completed “over the toilet,” presumably flushing her unborn child into the sewer after the act. “My abortion was my choice,” she writes, “and we can’t let that choice be taken away by old men who will never know what it means to be pregnant.”

Someone’s 11-year-old daughter, who perhaps just finished reading about another girl her own age in the “21 under 21” section of the website, will click on Bell’s column next. Then she can click one of the links Bell provided, which lead to the artist’s website (the first page the girl would land on is titled F***-U-Terus Pin).

From there, this little girl can peruse featured items like an “abortion greeting card” (“Hey, Baby-Killer!” written on the front and “F*** the trolls!” written inside), a “WWPRD” pin (“We’re not really interested in what Jesus what do [sic] … but P**** Riot? Sign us up!”), numerous images of both heterosexual and homosexual adult couples performing sexual acts, and yes, the explicit “art exhibit” mentioned above.

What Teen Vogue Teaches Us

Judging from Whitney Bell’s column, pro-abortion activists like the directors of Teen Vogue don’t care about women’s access to healthcare nearly as much as they care about the abortion industry’s access to children.

Most teenagers can’t even legally consent to sex, yet we tolerate radicals like Whitney Bell barraging them with pictures of adult genitalia, and guard our children’s “right” to the mortifying “choice” of abortion.

For all the talk of Christian and conservative “misogyny,” any sincere person should be more concerned about pro-abortion child abuse.
