Forget a heart or a cross pendant — the DC Abortion Fund has a new charm sure to make the ladies go wild.

DCAF, a nonprofit that offers funding to women who cannot afford the full cost of an abortion, is raising money for its cause by offering donors who give $10 a month or more a coat hanger pendant, “as a token of our thanks.”

The coat hanger is a symbol of dangerous, illegal abortions, which activists argue will happen in droves and kill women if abortion is illegal.

“Donors who sign up to give $10/month or more will receive a DCAF coat hanger necklace as our way to say thank you. To join as a monthly sustainer and receive your pendant, visit our online donation page today and in the dedication box, type in ‘Coat Hanger,’” DCAF explains on its donation page.

According to National Review, DCAF has offered this token of appreciation before, as part of a holiday special in December 2009.
