I suppose there are other ways the abortion rights movement could undermine its cause, but the video posted below seems pretty effective, and ironic: just as pro-lifers are debating whether they should use graphic images, since they turn off so many people, the Center for Reproductive Rights takes the opposite tack with this send-up of a turn on.
In it, actor Mehcad Brooks does an unctuous come on to the Roe v. Wade decision, which turned 40 this week. Husband to wife? Or gigolo to a client? Why didn’t they just send around a sonogram of Cecile Richards?
Pia de Solenni and other pro-lifers are creeped out, no surprise. But how about women, as in feminists? Or African-Americans? Or even the ghost of Isaac Hayes? It seems like a misfire on so many levels.
Which is surprising, because abortion is, you know, just so naturally hilarious.
