An abortion, anyone? Absolutely!!

This from one of Malaysia's English language papers Monday, talking about a small remnant forest reserve not far from where I live:

"Since the proposed cemetery project was announced by the previous state government, residents of neighbouring housing estates ... had collectively voiced strong objection. They had been calling for the abortion of the project to save the forest reserve from being developed."

I like this use of the word.

Certainly a different way of saying it.
