Controversial "Abortion Simulator" headed for the App Store



TouchArcade has reported on a new app called "Abortion Simulator" where you perform abortions. It is unknown whether or not Apple will approve the app.

The game's publisher Kierun Studios tried to address concerns on the site's forum.

Guys,

Just to clarify, Our intent with this Simulator was not to make fun of the sensitive topic of abortion or to steer your opinion about it in a particular direction.

Most people we surveyed, Abortion, was a black box to them. Pregnant women goes in a clinic, comes out with foetus aborted. Everything that happens in between, nobody could speak much about it.

Our intent with this simulator was to give a bird’s eye view of the process that happens in between.
Become aware about
* Chemical vs Surgical approaches.
* How procedure varies based on further you are in the pregnancy.
* How complexity varies based on weeks.

There are no scores, coins, leaderboards or achievements, because we saw it more as a simulator to just walk you through the process.

Also we have proper content rating in place to avoid kids downloading it.

KS.
