A pro-choice cover of “Call Me Maybe” takes on Virginia’s attempt to shut down its abortion clinics

I know, I know. You thought the “Call Me Maybe” cover trend was blessedly over. But I’m the only person in the world who actually isn’t sick of the song yet. And a group called Cooch Watch 2012 has an important message for Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli–which all anti-choice lawmakers could stand to hear.

“I’ve never met you and this is shady.” Indeed.

Cuccinelli has been nothing if not persistent in his attempt to shut down Virginia’s 23 abortion clinics. A few months ago the health board voted to exempt all of the existing clinics from onerous new TRAP regulations that could force most, if not all, of them to close. But Cuccinelli said the board didn’t go far enough and ordered them to reconsider at a meeting next month.
