My friend Laura worked there one summer and when her manager went to the food court for one of her three-hour lunches, Laura would sneak me in for free abortions.

In return, I’d give her the cosmetics that we were supposed to put out as testers. I told my boss that I saw rich ladies stealing them, which he totally believed.

Women would pay me to knock them up just so they could enjoy the experience of having a late-term abortion.

Some of those fetuses were old enough to ask, "Why, Mommy?" before being dropped into the medical waste can to die.

And the gals would say, "It feels soooo good." Like a sexy vacation.

I went to a double feature of Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgement Day. There was about a 15 minute break between the end of Terminator before the next movie started. I thought to myself, "I've been meaning to get an abortion." So, I just walked across the hall, got the slice and dice special and got back to the theater in time for Terminator 2 to start. The ice in my drink hadn't even had time to melt!

The one in our local upscale mall had the huge wide windows flanking the opening, so passers-by could see customers splayed out on the tables having the procedure performed on them. You always looked so absurd and vulnerable during the process, and I used to worry that a classmate or a crush would walk by and see me with the dorky gown and the surgical cap they’d make you put on. At the same time, though, it was the kind of establishment you liked to be seen walking into, as the procedures were kind of pricey for a high-schooler and frequenting one implied that your family had $$$ to throw around. (For me, though, it was a only a twice-a-year treat, courtesy of birthday or XMas dosh.)

I've still got the free t-shirt they gave away with each procedure. 've got t-shirts in a rainbow of colors -- a pink one and a blue one, of course. But they also had t-shirts in red, green, yellow, purple, orange, black and white.

No matter the color, they all had the Abortion Hut logo and accompanying slogan, "Undo it at the Hut."

They quit making those t-shirts two decades ago, for some bizarre reason Now they sell for a few hundred dollars on Ebay.

Oh. My. Gawd!

I used to WORK at Hotdog on a Stick!

I was one of the lemonade girls - you know, the ones that have to use that giant plunger to churn the lemon slurry?!

Anyway, the Abortion Hut used to give us HoaS girls a 10% discount there, and on my second, no, maybe my third time getting rid of my oopsie, the office manager offered me a job.

I was still kinda groggy, so I says yes.

So I show up on my first day, and they lead me to one of the back rooms. It had a giant vat that was covered (thank god) and it had one of them big accordion tubes going from the vat to a hole in one of the walls.

Get this—

My job was to stand on a little platform next to the giant vat but above this big oil drum and use a big ol’ plunger - the VERY SAME KIND we used for lemonade at ‘The Stick’!

Marsha - she’s the office manager at the Abortion Hut - she says they hired me on account of my big shoulders.

Thing is, we don’t have to wear those lame boner hats! But it did kinda throw my balance off when I churned.

Lucky for me I got turned down from Orange Julius and got a job at ‘The Stick’ instead, right?!

Such good times! Dayton's in downtown Minneapolis, the one where Mary Tyler Moore throws her cap in the air, well such posh abortiata services were rarely seen in the midwest in the 60's and 70's. They had a 'fast service' lane in the basement, right between the hair salon and the deli-- talk about synergy! Feeling a bit more up market, well there's was the Oak Room on the eighth floor. Yes, hushed and paneled with a full linen service, cocktails of course, and the pièce de résistance; Myron Anderson on that big Steinway! Such wistful and lilting tones.

I think it was my third or forth abortiata and I splurged on the Oak Room. Getting the little problem whisked away while sipping a dry martini, a half & half lunch special.

Chez Abortion charged a lot more if you just wanted liposuction without the abortion. Like triple the price of the Double Suck as we affectionately called it.

So, whenever I was putting on a few extra pounds and wanted to liposuction it away, I would get pregnant so I could get the Double Suck and save money.

Milo Snuffleupagas opened a Brainwash Hut in Florida with a "2-for-One No Homo" coupon to reprogram the brains of children starting to show signs of the gay.

He especially liked it when he got two brothers under the age of 10 to work over. For just $20, Florida white trash could leave their kids in Milo's hands for a year!

Milo liked punishing little boys' private parts during the electroshock sessions. The boys would scream and wail when fingers and other blunt objects prolapsed their intestines on to the floor But Milo would just say, "Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to cum on to me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven."

Little boys often questioned when their own brothers along with Milo were inserted up their nether regions, creating three males in one. But Milo would just call it a "Trinity,"

Yeah R84 We grew up in the country and the nearest Abort-o-rama was all the way in Tulsa. Mama used to tell us to get behind Bessie, our old milk cow, then quickly stick your arm up her cooter. Bessie didn't like this, well mostly didn't like the surprise part, and would kick backwards. Guaranteed to pop that little tadpole clean off the pond as mama used to say. My little sister Marylou didn't take the whole thing seriously, was laughing and joking so when Bessie kicked back it ruptured a kidney rather than popping the tadpole. Papa was So mad as he had to drive her to Tulsa and spend the $149 for a oopsie late abortion rather than the $ 89 special if it was less than six months. Marylou got no new school clothes for two years as punishment.

I miss the old Montgomery Fetus Ward. Mom used to let me pick out a cute outfit every time she went in for her abortions, she said I was special because she didn't get me scraped out like all my other siblings.

My local Abortion Hut is running a special with the local Sir Speedy car wash, free interior vacuum with every full service abortion.

The Abortion Hut was too expensive with their fancy storefront and their private rooms where they did the procedure.

You could save a bundle by getting it done at the abortion kiosk in the middle of the mall. Sure, everyone walking by could see you getting dilated, scraped, and flushed, but the SAVINGS! Oh, the SAVINGS!

We used to have a huge Abortion’s-and-things here in town, I sure miss that place. They always sent me a special birthday coupon in the mail for a free abortion and a stainless steel colander.

Wow r116, our Abortion Hut (the mean girls in my junior year always called it "Abortion Slut", our AH gave free kitchen gadgets too. Turke basters, of coarse, but sometimes it was a stainless melonnballer or stainless shishkebob skewers. I still have a drawer full of them!

My grandmother would snort when we'd all come back from our spa afternoons at the Hut.

"We had elegant purveyors in Paris. I loved Les castagnettes de la pute. A fine lunch while they did what they did under the tablecloth. So civilized."

We'd laugh and say, Yeah, Grand-Mère, sure. But did they have a raffle for a free insemination before the next trip?"

Our local place kept Abortion Hut at bay by giving you the results in a special Presentation Mason Jar to be oohed and aahed over by you r friends. Abortion Hut was still flushing it all down the toilet. They finally wised up and started giving you your child in cut glass Waterford containers. Quite the scandal when those containers turned out to be pressed glass from Walgreens.

And those Walgreen containers were actually whiskey decanters sold at four for five dollars.

I can't remember if it was just a local chain, or if it was all over. It was called the Poop 'N Scoop, you got a high colonic at the same time as your abortion. Of course it went out of business when they had that unfortunate incident of reversing the two procedures. But up until then, I thought it was a great idea. You would leave pounds lighter in under an hour.

R126 They still have them in Thailand! The may may have just stolen the name and concept but when I was in Ko Chang and miserable with an oopsie they were a lifesaver. And you're right a really high colonic and you are ready for a bikini, a margarita, and the beach.

Abortion Hut was just for kids. Like the Merry Go Round and Spencer’s. We used to go to the clinic in JC Penney back by the salon. It was drab and they only offered one style of bortion, but when you have a big family and were in as often as we were, you came to appreciate it.

My Abortion Hut in New England was near Sears (the anchor store) entrance, and directly next to Friendly's. I loved this - because it could be a win-win either way I could eat my feelings after they scrambled my unborns brains and I queefed out the rest - and then I could eat my feelings away at Friendly's And it my twat wasn't too sore I could fuck some rough trade from the Sears tire shop behind the dumpster.

The mall experience today is not what it used to be in the 80’s and 90’s when you actually looked forward to getting knocked up so you could go the mall and get a abortion like the other girls.

This was the place to be seen proudly shuffling around to avoid dislodging the giant maxi pad between your legs.

I remember fondly that knowing look people gave you as you passed bye with a smile on your face and a twinkle in your eyes.

I worked at the Woodfield Mall Abortion Hut as the No Wire Hanger Coat Check Boy. I kept track of the shoes and coats while you were done, with style.

I found the Year End 1987 Abortion Hut Playlist, believe me, by the end of the month, you never wanted to hear the songs again:

I Think We're Alone Now (Tiffany) *Also, an Abortion Hut Woodfield Client! Shhhhhh!)

Never Gonna Give You Up (Rick Astley)

With Or Without You (U2)

Didn't We Almost Have It All (Whitney)

(I've Had) The Time of My Life (Jennifer Warnes)

Blue Monday (New Order)

Love Removal Machine (The Cult)

The One I Love (REM)

Victim Of Love (Erasure)

Never Let Me Down Again (Depeche Mode)

Alone (Heart)

Here I Go Again (Whitesnake)

Notorious (Duran Duran)

I Just Died In Your Arms (Cutting Crew)

Change Of Heart (Cyndi Lauper)

Point of No Return (Expose)

R143, that was on the Summer '85 list, along with Sheila E's Strut. It took awhile, because Prince didn't want the song associated with abortion, but Sheila was all for it. She did that Sugar Walls duet with Sheena Easton for the Abort-Aid concert in '86.

by Anonymousreply 144September 15, 2021 7:46 PM

Oh, the Abort-Aid concert! I'd completely forgotten about it! What a show.

What a remember most about it was Don Johnson and Joan Baez doing the nasty right there on stage to demonstrate how babies are made. Demographics for the show were trending young, so producers made a spur of the moment decision to turn it educational for a moment and have the demonstration. I believe Joan and Don even got nominated for an Emmy for public service programming for that segment.

The thing a lot of people didn't realize is that Joan Baez and Don Johnson were selected for this Abort-Aid segment as a follow up to their much talked appearance at Live Aid in July 1985. Many will recall Joan's come on to the super suave and ultra handsome Don on stage at Live Aid. She inquired of him, "Could we discuss the possibility of rape?"

Abortion Hut in my mall was a bit off. Rather than redeem S&H Green Stamps, they gave the green stamps out after each visit. 1,000 green stamps for each abortion.

They only did it for about a year before someone in corporate noticed they were giving out Green Stamps rather than redeeming them. But during that year, our Abortion Hut was one of the Top Five busiest in the country.

Some women were getting pregnant on a monthly basis just so they could get the S&H Green Stamps! We got a new color TV thanks to mom's monthly abortions!

As word got out, some women were driving 500 miles to come to our Abortion Hut for green stamps, riding right by at least a dozen malls that had Abortion Hut locations to get to ours! The power of green stamps!

I wasn't just any old color TV, r164. It was a Magnavox console TV in a nice oak cabinet that also had a record player and an 8-track tape player, plus an AM/FM radio! It was top of the line! It was a full entertainment center, before people even started calling them "entertainment centers."

All thanks to those S&H Green Stamps from Abortion Hut. And of course mom and dad's active sex life.

However, mom and dad were such prudes, they never told their friends they got it via S&H green stamps from mom's monthly abortions. They said they won it at the Baptist Church auction.
