A Funny Guy Stands On Stage And Goes Right For The Abortion Joke. He Makes An Excellent Point.
No matter how much you like the state you live in, there’s gotta be at least one claim to fame that you’re not proud about. (Mine = Kansas = Westboro Baptist Church. UGH!)
This guy knows how to take one of his state’s faults and turn it into a room full of laughter, which is pretty awesome considering how upsetting the situation is.
The legislation he jokes about gained national attention when Virginia legislators proposed a bill in 2012 that would have required most women seeking an abortion to first undergo a transvaginal ultrasound (aka a probe inserted into the vagina for no medically necessary reason … eek!). It moved forward, but the language was ultimately changed. So that’s good, but mandated ultrasounds are still a huge tactic in the anti-abortion movement, and they are imposed all over the place. Maybe even in your state?
