I will never ever get used to hearing this story.

“More than 95 per cent of abortions in Africa and Latin America are performed under unsafe conditions. Methods include drinking turpentine, bleach or tea made from livestock manure, and inserting sticks, knitting needles, or chicken bones into the uterus.”

Knitting needles are for making stuff with, not for abortion.

(You like craft and give a crap that this happens? Perhaps you should say hello to the ladies of the Craftivist Collective or head over to see what Betsy Greer – who coined the tern Craftivism – is up to.)
