Signs for ABORTION
Definition: the deliberate termination of a human pregnancy, most often performed during the first 28 weeks of pregnancy. [Oxford]
Glossed as REMOVAL/REMOVED. Use this in context or sentence. But, when using a standalone word, then add the other sign (glossed as, for example, BABY).
The other video of the compound sign (glossed as BABY+REMOVE/REMOVAL) has been gone viral at times, where the latter part (glossed as "REMOVE/REMOVAL") was unduly scrutinized and overly misinterpreted by non-signing hearing English speakers, before an explanation of the etymological origin of the signed compound word was added to this that the sign itself means "to remove" or "removal". Haven't hearing speakers' scrutinized nor criticized about their own English word abortion (a noun derived from "to abort")? It's just a word. *smh*
