The act of breaking up with one's significant other by performing an unwanted Abe Linclon on him/her. It is expected that the recipient will express outrage and a desire to end the relationship at which point the individual performing the Abe Lincoln typically proclaims "You're free to go", thereby emancipating the recipient from the relationship.
Michael - "Dude, did you break up with Tyra last night?"

Jeff - "Yup, I gave that skank the old Emancipation Proclamation!"
