The Bloody Crossroads of Comedy, Abortion, and Tin-Eared Pro-Lifers


The anti-abortion Web site March Together for Life is appalled by a newspaper column by one Caroline Weber, who wrote a piece (back in 1999!) defending her abortion. Selected snippets, courtesy of March Together for Life:

"I am totally psyched for this abortion!"

"Those pro-life activists made it pretty clear that, unlike me, they actually think abortion is bad and to be avoided. Are they nuts? Abortion is the best!"

"It wasn't until now that I was lucky enough to be pregnant with a child I had no means to support."

"I just know it's going to be the best non-anesthetized invasive uterine surgery ever!"

Tsk-tsks March for Life:

Miss Weber, you have killed your child, which you admit is a baby/human being, intentionally. That does make you an admitted murderer. I'm not going to "condemn you to hell", I'm going to pray for your forgiveness and for the suffering which you will endure when you realize what you have done. Every baby you see from that moment on is going to wake you up to the realization that you killed your child.

March for Life also mentions the source of Weber's testimonial: The Onion, America's Finest News Source.
