Abortion activists are celebrating in the streets after the Supreme Court struck down a Texas law. They certainly seemed to find it a great day to be alive. However, there doesn’t seem to be an official flag to represent abortion activists. If they had such a flag, they could wave it around each time they reach a milestone.
And, appropriately enough, the abortion movement is reaching a very special milestone. As of 2012, the number of abortions performed in the United States is estimated to be over 51 million.¹ This is closing in on 56 million, the lower end of Dyadkin’s estimate of the number of people killed by the Soviet Union.²
Therefore, it seemed appropriate that the abortion movement’s flag be modeled on the Soviet flag, with a slight modification to reflect their intrinsic values:
Instead of a hammer and a sickle, this new flag has a scalpel and a suction tube. Doesn’t that just say it all?

Appropriate, isn’t it?
