ASL sign for: abortion

Termination of pregnancy.

Gloss: REMOVAL/REMOVED.

The other video (gloss: BABY+REMOVED) has been gone viral at times. To explain an etymological origin of this signed word, the latter part of the ASL compound simply is "removal" or "to remove". Use a sentence to put "abortion" in context.

Why is this ASL verb/noun "REMOVE/REMOVAL" being scrutinized by hearing English speakers where the colder English word "abortion" (a verb derived from "to abort") is not talked about?
