Carafem, the spa abortion experience is about profits. Not service, not women, not activism. Normalizing abortion for them isn’t about normalizing abortion. It’s about making money. Which they will make more of, if abortion is normalized.
There may be a great deal of money to be made in massaging the roiled consciences of those with much to feel roiled about. But that will make Carafem an entrepreneurial success, and nothing more.
One more thing: they don’t do surgical abortions (well why would they, those are more expensive, therefore less profit margin).
Because Carafem will offer only the abortion pill, not vacuum aspiration or other surgical procedures, prospective clients must be no more than 10 weeks pregnant. …
After receiving counseling and some basic tests, Carafem clients will take an initial pill at the clinic. Purdy’s team expects to get them in and out quickly, within about 60 minutes.
That’s a super fast spa experience. Relax, ladies. But not too much. Because we need to charge another client.
When my friend took the abortion pill, from her description, there’s no spa or cup of tea that helps when you are throwing up so much that you are concerned the pill didn’t actually work and you have to go back to get it again.
So the question is: Do they hire extra folks to clean up the vomit or do they simply hope that part happens at home?
