    'Got a quickie aborsh': Comedienne Sarah Silverman supports pro-choice debate, tweeting 'before-and-after abortion' photos

    By Olivia Fleming

    PUBLISHED: 16:54 EST, 13 April 2012 | UPDATED: 07:08 EST, 14 April 2012




    Comedienne Sarah Silverman joined America's current War on Women yesterday after she tweeted a hoax before-and-after abortion photo.

    Reigniting the women's rights movement via Twitter, the 41-year-old wrote: 'Got a quickie aborsh in case R v W gets overturned.'

    The controversial comment captioned two photos of Miss Silverman made to look like she was pregnant before getting an abortion - and quickly divided opinion.

    While she caused a wave of support from hundreds of people voicing liberal pro-choice beliefs, she also drew criticism for her 'insensitivity' for a subject that is 'no laughing matter'.

    The first image shows Silverman extremely bloated after having eaten a burrito, and the second shows her wearing the same outfit with a wash-board flat stomach after the bloating had subsided.

    At the expense of the Republican party who want to take away women’s autonomy over their bodies, the comedienne paired potty humour with political commentary, using the montage to make a strong and simple point about the ongoing War on Women.

    I saw this posted on Drudge this morning. If you are pro abortion and support the abortion industrial complex, you should ask yourself after seeing her "photos" if you feel disgusted or ashamed. If not, then why not and if you do feel disgusted or ashamed then there might be hope for you yet.

    Just put aside that Silverman is a disgusting Hollywood skank. What she has done has put the true face of the abortion industrial complex out there. Yes, if you feel happy about her tweet and proud she was able to kill an unborn child, you have no soul.

    What kind of person thinks that faking an abortion is comedy?

    Women who have had abortions run the gamut from callously casual to traumatized, but joking about faking one is just vile. The one important thing about this is that Silverman ought never to reproduce. The pain that such a woman would inflict on a child is too horrible to contemplate.

    My take was that she was mocking people who think that women make the decision lightly. You know, people who think that men should force women to have tests and be consulted, just in case they are too stupid to understand what they are doing.

    Uh, no. She's making a libtard political statement.

    The people who assume that a woman seeking an abortion is too stupid to understand what she is doing are the providers, who do everything that they can to keep them in the dark about fetal development and the status of the fetus. In fact, Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers already do ultrasounds in order to determine the age of the fetus and view it while performing the procedures.

    Ultrasounds Already Part of VA Planned Parenthood Abortion Procedure
    Alana Goodman | @alanagoodman 02.21.2012 - 9:20

    The backlash against the new Virginia legislation requiring ultrasounds before an abortion procedure – which some have bizarrely compared to “forcible rape” – may be even more overblown than initially thought. Apparently, ultrasounds are already part of the abortion procedures at Virginia Planned Parenthoods.

    The Virginia League for Planned Parenthood didn’t immediately return calls yesterday. But here’s what it said on the recording for its abortion services information hotline:

    “Patients who have a surgical abortion generally come in for two appointments. At the first visit we do a health assessment, perform all the necessary lab work, and do an ultrasound. This visit generally takes about an hour. At the second visit, the procedure takes place. This visit takes about an hour as well. For out of town patients for whom it would be difficult to make two trips to our office, we’re able to schedule both the initial appointment and the procedure on the same day.

    Medical abortions generally require three visits. At the first visit, we do a health assessment, perform all the necessary lab work, and do an ultrasound. This visit takes about an hour. At the second visit, the physician gives the first pill and directions for taking two more pills at home. The third visit is required during which you will have an exam and another ultrasound.”

    From a health perspective, these ultrasounds are critical. They detect the exact age of the fetus, which often dictates which type of abortion procedure the woman can receive. They can also spot potential complications that could impact the procedure, like ectopic pregnancies. In clinics that don’t have access to ultrasound technology, sometimes pelvic exams can be used as a substitute. But those are arguably just as invasive as the transvaginal ultrasounds pro-choice activists are decrying.

    In other words, the real reason pro-choicers oppose the law isn’t because of the “invasiveness” or “creepiness” of ultrasounds. It can’t be it. Virginia Planned Parenthood clinics already include them in its abortion procedures.

    And let’s be honest. The main reason pro-lifers support the Virginia ultrasound bill isn’t out of medical necessity — not if these scans are already standard operating procedure at clinics.

    This fight, like virtually all abortion law fights, is about how much of a role religion and morality should play in regulating these procedures. Pro-choice activists seem to have no problem with ultrasounds, as long as they’re done for medical reasons. But the fact that ultrasounds tend to already be part of abortions isn’t enough for pro-life activists. They want the main purpose for the scans to be promoting the “culture of life.” The Virginia law would mandate doctors to display and describe the ultrasound to the patient. And the image could end up dissuading many women from going ahead with the abortion.

    While the pro-lifers have been pretty open about their motives, the pro-choicers – whose motto used to be “safe, legal and rare” – haven’t been. If they want to oppose the bill in order to keep morality out of abortion laws, that’s fine. But the rape comparisons are fundamentally dishonest and insult the intelligence of the public they’re trying to win over.
    Since ultrasounds are already part of the abortion procedure, the medical necessity and intrusiveness arguments are false. The only change is that the laws that you think that Silverman was supposedly mocking require that the patient be given the opportunity to view the ultrasound. What's your objection now?

    I would just like to point out that, had this not been a stunt and she had been murdered on the way to the clinic and the baby died as a result, the person that murdered her would be charged with two homicides in a great many states (including CA). This absolutely bizarre double-standard completely mystifies me and stands as an example of just how confused our society is on this issue. Some people really have to make up their minds I think.

    Sarah Silverman is one sick, evil b**ch! I'm sorry. But I hope there's a special place in hell reserved just for her and all the other psycopaths out there that like to kill innocent children before they're even born!

    Well, most people are aware that Sarah Silverman is not a subtle or tasteful comic, and I see only one person here was dumb enough to take her seriously.

    Most people are not even aware of who she is. She's a Z-list celebrity that obvioulsy hasn't had anything written about her in a while.
    Be Not Afraid.
