Is This Really Serious? « Social Issues »

I can't believe it's actually real.

Click, if you dare. It's that cheesy.

Found via The American Thinker, who seems to be taking it seriously, and whom was found via Dean Esmay. (Dean's link points to the piece I read first, before browsing the main page to find the second).

Yeah, its real. is the website of the "political arm" of PlannedParrenthood.

I guess there is no line that PP isn't willing to cross. If you don't kill your first borns, you are unAmerican.

I cannot WAIT to send this to MT. Fer goodness sake, she's drinking a TAB whilst reading MS. and has a ponytail and nerd-glasses to boot. It's me! Well, maybe if I dropped some weight.

Well, I am not even going to jump into this too far, except somebody should tell The American Thinker that CHICKS RULE! :) And I think most girls learned to embrace the colloquialism "chick" and make it their own long ago. And I bet Janeane Garafalo would say (to steal from the Will Farrell skit at "I support this message...In fact, it's AWESOME!"

I personally, as a dedicated pro-choice type, think this was meant to be tongue-in-cheek and humorous while having an underlying message of how important it is to elect candidates who are pro-choice.

Yeah, but ad says W wants to pack the Supreme Court just to end abortion, whereas any good liberal knows W wants to pack the Supreme Court so we can start executing gays. Just ask Andrew Sullivan! [grin]
Seriously, tho, rather than being "tongue-in-cheek"-style over the top, it seems to me to embody exactly what right-wingers like to think left-wingers are like, including:
-Thinking George Bush is evil and stupid
-Thinking John Ashcroft violates privacy laws for fun
-pushing abortion using the line "everyone controls their own bodies" when abortion activists obviously don't give a hoot about men.
-calling abortion The Single Most Important Human Right"
-handing out condoms as a way to support abortion
-Most importantly: why cdoes their website have to use '', instead of just ''?
All in all, it seems more like a good spoof, like the site.

If Planned Parenthood thinks those sort of exaggerations will resonate, then someone is absolutely nuts: Planned Parenthood, or liberals.
