Abortion is not baby murder, says this activist music video by punk formation Vulva, in which the terminology of the anti-abortion movement is visualised in hyperbolic ways. This led to controversy and parliamentary questions.
For this protest song, Vulva singer Kim Hoorweg was inspired by the shame Kim felt around this person’s own abortion. Even among Kim’s 'left-wing family', the subject was taboo. Could this be caused by the over-the-top rhetoric of the anti-abortion movement that puts the termination of pregnancy on a par with baby murder? In this activist music video, the punk band ridicules this jargon, by visualising it in absurdist ways. The video led to demonstrations and parliamentary questions by the SGP and ChristenUnie.
