“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.


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.
