Sense of Humor Aborted by Kansas Fundies

When the Onion published an article on Planned Parenthood’s grand opening of

its long-planned $8 billion Abortionplex, a sprawling abortion facility that will allow the organization to terminate unborn lives with an efficiency never before thought possible…one pregnancy every three seconds

in Topeka, Kansas, it was pretty clear it was a gag. I mean, being in the Onion alone should have been a clue. And these made-up quotes from Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards seem a little um..extreme.

Although we’ve traditionally dedicated 97 percent of our resources to other important services such as contraception distribution, cancer screening, and STD testing, this new complex allows us to devote our full attention to what has always been our true passion: abortion. And since Congress voted to retain our federal funding, it’s going to be that much easier for us to maximize the number of tiny, beating hearts we stop every day.

But the clincher–should have been the very widely reported news that Kansas hates abortion clinics–instituting a new series of regulations; and even more importantly, defunded Planned Parenthood.

But some folks in Kansas just seem dense.
