ASL sign for: abortion


termination of pregnancy


It's a compound word. The former part of the compound is not necessarily used within some contexts (sentences).


This video has been recently viral. They use the descriptive words: "trash", "throw-away", etc. To explain an etymological origin of this signed compound word (one of the variations), the latter part of this compound word originated from the ASL sign "removal" or "to remove". No more truth than the English term "abortion".
