Whoa there, Huffington Post!
This is far less horrifying than your Niall Ferguson cover story this week.
annnnd…Rob Delaney once again gets to the heart of things. Love that dude.
Reeeeeally?! A coat hanger, signifying one of the most desperate and terrifying abortion methods that women have had to resort to over the years, is more horrifying than a known conservative’s case for firing the President?! There’s political discourse—and then there’s this. We’re biased, obvs, but gonna have to disagree with you on that.
Yes, it is less horrifying to evoke a terrible and disturbing period in history if half of the country’s political spectrum wants to return to it and that is one of the things at stake in the election than it is to use your cover not even to discuss but to become a part of the bullshit horse race theatrics of a presidential election.
1)You made me sympathize with HuffPo, and I’ll never forgive you for that.
2) You wrote “more horrifying” when you meant “less horrifying.”
My mom almost died from a back alley abortion in the ’60s and the coat hanger is an important and serious symbol to her (and many) as a reminder that we will NEVER GO BACK.
