Very Smart People Think The Onion’s Article on Planned Parenthood’s Abortionplex Is Real
Today, The Onion as a wonderful piece of satire about Planned Parenthood’s new $8 billion Abortionplex, which promises to make abortions easy, breezy and fun. It essentially takes pro-life hysteria to an insane extreme, and the result is some sort of right-wing fever dream. Unfortunately, it was a little too subtle for some people on Facebook.
To be fair, it’s not easy to realize it’s a joke with lines like this:
“We really want abortion to become a regular part of women’s lives, especially younger women who have enough fertile years ahead of them to potentially have dozens of abortions,” said Richards, adding that the Abortionplex would provide shuttle service to and from most residences, schools, and shopping malls in the region. “Our hope is for this facility to become a regular destination where a woman in her second trimester can whoop it up at karaoke and then kick back while we vacuum out the contents of her cervix.”
Don’t worry! Those evil abortionists won’t have time to build this thing before the rapture anyways. [via]
