Outrageous: Gucci Pushes Abortion on Demand at Paris Fashion Show
Luxury brand chose to advocate for 'choice' and against life
Gucci’s Cruise 2020 collection was unveiled to a “VIP audience” in Rome this week — with an abortion theme including a jacket and a dress that feature pro-abortion slogans, according to the Associated Press.
The AP reports, “The collection … featured a purple jacket with the slogan ‘My Body, My Choice’ on the back, and a sweater emblazoned with the date ‘May 22, 1978,’ marking the day that abortion became legal in Italy.”
Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele says he was “inspired” by the pro-life legislative pushes in the United States in states like Alabama, Georgia, Missouri, and Louisiana.
Theses states’ new laws, Michele said, “made me consider how much women should be highly respected.”
Michele told reporters, as noted by the AP: “Sometimes in life choices are difficult, but I believe that it is the most difficult decision for a woman. I respect that decision. I respect that decision as I respect the idea that the uterus is a garden. I wanted to portray the idea that to interrupt a pregnancy does not wipe out the garden, the flower, that is the uterus of every woman.”
Does Michele realize that abortion wipes out actual future women by physically destroying baby girls?

At the Gucci show, “models cavorted through a set made to look like a hidden party where ‘anything goes’ — no doubt a nod to the overarching ‘sexual freedom’ Gucci wanted to portray with its 2020 Cruise line,” as noted by The Daily Wire.
Whether portraying abortion as positive as a political or fashion statement, Gucci and the elite cultural class the brand belongs to take pride in telling only one side of the story when it comes to this complex issue.
Yes, life can be difficult, tragically so, for women who find themselves with an unwanted pregnancy.
But it is far more tragic for the most defenseless among us — the unborn — whose lives have been snuffed out by the millions and who have never had a voice to fight back.
Gucci is a private company that has every right to promote whatever agenda it pleases.
We, as private citizens, also have the right to push back and speak up for the innocent who can’t.
