A pro-abortion group just released a video that tries (and fails) to make abortion seem funny.
NARAL Pro-Choice America produced a video entitled “Comedians in Cars Getting Abortions,” featuring two comedians (“Silicon Valley’s” Alice Wetterlund and standup comedian Nato Green) en route to an abortion clinic. The video is intended to mimic Jerry Seinfeld’s popular video series in which he chats with other celebrities while riding in a car, but it’s terribly unfunny and riddled with misleading statements.
In a disturbing exchange at the beginning of the video, Wetterlund explains she’s getting an abortion because the world doesn’t need any more kids.
“That kid is slapping his dad in the face,” Green says.
“Yeah, we don’t need more of those in the world,” Wetterlund responds.
“Good point,” Green says. “Let’s go.”
While searching for a nearby clinic, Wetterlund mentions there’s one located in the (presumably nearby) neighborhood of Silver Lake in Los Angeles, which Green responds will be “super busy” in the month following Coachella — an annual music festival held in the neighboring Coachella Valley.
The duo accidentally stumble into crisis pregnancy center (gasp!) and are greeted by a creepy woman who presents them with a model of a baby at eight weeks of development. The two jokingly respond there’s no way that’s Wetterlund’s baby because it doesn’t look like her.
When the pair finally finds an abortion clinic, the abortionist informs them they must leave and come back 32 hours later due to state laws. In reality, there are no significant restrictions on abortion in the state of California, where the video seems to be based. Women in California aren’t required to wait a certain period of time before obtaining an abortion, nor are girls under 18 required to obtain parental consent.
The abortionist then says she’s required by law to show photos of Wetterlund’s baby in utero, and proceeds to show her a photo of her unborn baby and a healthy 10-year-old boy — presumably the baby she’s carrying.
Only 25 states have some sort of an ultrasound requirement, but California is not among them. Some states merely require abortionists to provide women access to an ultrasound if they want one.
At the end of the visit, the abortionist says it’s probably easier to just “go to a place where it’s legal, like Canada or Uruguay.” Ironically, women seeking an abortion in Uruguay must first consult a gynecologist, mental health professional, and social worker and engage in a five-day “reflection period” first, whereas in the United States the longest waiting period is 72 hours.
The tagline at the end of the video reads: “It shouldn’t be this hard to get an abortion,” a statement that’s sadly emblematic of the abortion-on-demand movement, which has forgotten its old mantra to make abortion “safe, legal, and rare.”
