Do you want to hear a joke?
Eric Erickson is a right-wing talking head and a deeply unfunny man.
Texas has just passed a horrible abortion bill which makes it much more difficult for Texas women to get abortions. Erickson is delighted with the ruling and entirely contemptuous of all women and all human life. He said this:
That’s right, he’s making a joke about women having to use coat hangers to induce abortion because they no longer have another option.
Ophelia posts on why coat hangers are horrific instruments of abortion. I can’t imagine anything less funny. I can’t imagine why anyone would prefer women to butcher themselves in secret than to receive safe, humane, compassionate abortions in the company of their loved ones.
