“Bunnies in a Blender” and other anti-choice videos

The American Life League has released a new video calling for the defunding of Planned Parenthood because they abuse animals…oh wait, no, that’s not quite right.

Transcript after the jump.

I was promised this video would have me “seeing red.” But I’m just confused. As a pro-choice person, I don’t believe that abortion–a legal medical procedure that’s an integral part of reproductive health care and a fundamental human right of all women–is all that much like blending bunnies. And as a pro-truth person, I know that Planned Parenthood already doesn’t receive any taxpayer funding to provide abortions. (Despite the fact that they damn well should.) So this whole debate has about as little to do with abortion as it does with, well, bunnies in a blender.

Meanwhile, Faith 2 Action, the group behind Ohio’s so-called “Heartbeat Bill,” goes the more traditional route of using dancing babies to the sell the anti-choice position–and also manages to ruin “99 Balloons” forever.

Finally, I leave you with this gem because there is seriously nothing–nothing–more painful than an anti-choice rap.

Transcript:

Imagine the government giving hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars every year to a company that does this. [Bunnie placed in blender. Sound of blender being turned on.]

It does. Only they’re not bunnies.

Receiving over 300 million of your tax dollars every year, Planned Parenthood does this nearly a thousand times a day.

Tell Congress: It’s time to stop Planned Parenthood’s tax funding.

    That video is outrageous, and the point is hardly made. A jump from putting a harmless animal in a blender to aborting a fetus is pretty thin.

    What is even more confusing is that billions of public tax dollars have been spent on in-vivo, animal, testing. So yes anti-choicers, our money goes to abortions for people who need them, but it also goes to electrocuting, dismembering, and destroying animals for capital gain. Which one is really more immoral?

    Coincidental first post about animals and username….

    I wouldn’t put the chunky, WHITE baby past them….but a blender, seriously?
    I’m gonna go out on a limb and say more animals were harmed in the making of that “PSA” than have ever faced injury at Planned Parenthood.
    What. On. Earth. ?!?!
    The number of people who have such skewed views of Planned Parenthood, abortion and pregnancy are proof that America needs comprehensive sex education. Stat.

    Videos like this make me wish that liars’ pants really did catch on fire.

    Gee whiz, why didn’t they show footage of a cow being led to slaughter? Or a chicken’s head being cut off before being squeezed into a McNugget? I hear that kind of video is readily available…..

    And why do ad’s like these always use a full grown baby – as if that is who is being “murdered”…

    oh wait… showing a bunch of cells or an embryo that can barely be distinguished as human or animal just doesn’t have the same impact though, does it?
